PLEASANT VALLEY came good over track and trip a fortnight ago and has been left on the same mark for her handicap debut. She can go in again with scope for further improvement. Tower Power also won here last time, beating Kantara Castle in the process, but is upped in class for this and Redcar maiden winner Ribblehead may prove a bigger threat stepping up in trip. Both Mayfield Boy and Derbyshire have something to prove over this longer trip.
