Verdict

AUCTION reappeared with a Lingfield maiden success then gained an emphatic victory at Newmarket for which she has been raised 10lb. It's hardly surprising to see her turn up with a 6lb penalty and a hat-trick beckons. Callmeakhab tackles this trip for the first time on her handicap debut but by the way she was staying on at Chester she should have no problems staying. Iberis ended her first campaign with a victory on soft ground at Warwick and may need those conditions to bring out the best in her while Strictly Ballroom takes a leap in distance having run over 6f last time.
