Blue Clumber showed her first worthwhile form when scoring on soft ground at Chepstow and might find this going a bit lively. Baker's Pursuit wasn't beaten far at Ayr but couldn't go the pace behind Gottcher at Musselburgh last week. Senora Lobo hasn't won since landing a seller at Yarmouth last July and ANNIE GOGH has never won a race of any description but the latter has been a bit unlucky in-running on occasions and, after a big drop in the ratings, won't get a better chance to lose her maiden tag.
