Verdict

Catwilldo finished half-a-length in front of STRATEGIC HEIGHTS over the course and distance last month with Breezolini just a length back in fourth. The weights favour the latter pair and the runner-up, who was having his first start for six months, should reverse the form and take this. Affinia Fifty, who finished seventh, has since occupied the same position behind Stoichkhov and Chillie Billie has now had 29 starts without winning but Mr Bounty, who began in handicaps off a mark of 60 and hasn't run badly, appears to have been handed a chance with a drop to 54. Little Bells makes her handicap debut after just three moderate runs.
