Verdict

Maybeme won over 1m2f at Beverley on Wednesday but now has a penalty to carry and she's struggled over this sort of trip in the past. Zefooha probably has too much weight at present and The Oil Magnate may need another run to put him straight but Favorite Girl never seems to run a bad race and Lady Bluesky will relish the soft ground. HANDLES FOR FORKS is still a maiden and hasn't raced since March but she went very close on several occasions over staying trips last year off similar marks and may just be a bit better than this grade.
