Madam Macie looks high enough in the weights now judged on her latest third in similar company at Thirsk. She did finish well ahead of Hot Rod Mamma, Parley and She's A Character when winning at Carlisle earlier this month, however, and can confirm running with that trio. CERTRAL makes more appeal dropping back in trip as this looks easier than her recent tasks and a repeat of her second at Nottingham in April would see Brian Ellison's charge come out best today. What's Up has kept good company since winning her maiden last year and may finish closer here.
