None of these can be recommended with any confidence and only a tentative vote goes the way of LADY POPPY. She's been well beaten since winning at Thirsk but drops back down in class for this. Economic Crisis and stablemate Busy Bimbo have yet to win away from Hamilton but Dark Opal is back on a winning mark if rediscovering her best. Two Turtle Doves finished closer at Carlisle on Monday but is upped a grade today.
