Verdict

Golan Heights has won once in 40 career starts, at Wolverhampton over 1m4f. He was sent there for a poor handicap last week but disappointed again when a beaten favourite and is hardly one to rely on. FIRST FRIDAY scored over the C&D from 5lb lower in November and has been going well enough from his new mark to take this, especially with Danny Mullins able to claim his 3lb allowance. Sinntani began in handicaps off 88 and is now 20lb lower so any return to form can see him go close along with Little Red Minx, who is blinkered for the first time on just her second start for Ger Lyons after being transferred from Peter Chapple-Hyam.
