PRESENTING RUBY was no match for As I Am at Worcester last month but that was her first run for more than two years and only her fourth under Rules. She has the beating of Nurse Ratched on that form and can only improve for the outing so could be worth an interest against several more exposed mares. Emerald Rose has a decent record in handicaps but Cannon Fodder is proving hard to win with and Old Dreams has been chasing. Me And Ben wasn't winning out of turn at Cartmel, however, and makes more appeal than Sapphire Rouge, Lucys Girl and She Is A Cracker.
