David O'Meara can do little wrong at present and SHARAARAH looks another for the yard. She looked on the way back to form with a close second at Thirsk and confirmed that opinion when produced with a late burst under David Nolan to catch today's rival Modern Lady at Musselburgh. The partnership is renewed here and a 4lb rise shouldn't prevent her confirming the form and following up. Jontleman has had a very busy year but shows no sign of slowing down and gained his fourth success since April last time but he has never raced over the minimum trip and, though this is an extended 5f, he may find it on the short side. Top Boy has been performing at a higher level and has come down in the ratings just enough to get into this 0-85 handicap - with his young rider claiming 7lb he has to be a threat. Trinityelitedotcom hasn't had much experience and a high draw may scupper his chances.
