The unexposed KATHLEEN FRANCES has proved highly progressive since being switched to handicaps and having won with load to spare at York last time out can go in again with a similar effort under this revised rating. Based on the pick of her form Dolphina looks fairly treated on handicap debut so should have a say in the outcome while Judiciary was expected to go better last time but might be worth giving another chance now back to his last winning mark. A open handicap but Kathleen Frances may still be ahead of the assessor.
