Elaala was soon tailed off on her reappearance at Stratford where Picot De Say was also well beaten. Oh No Not Harry, Party Palace and Bob Casey have questions to answer now and Phoenix Eye is looking a light of former days. Shabak Hom's third at Stratford last month was the first time he's reached the frame over hurdles while Noble Media collected a 7lb penalty after winning at that track last week and could find this ground faster than ideal. STAR POTENTIAL will strip fitter for her run behind Claude Carter at Market Rasen and could be a bit of value here, though it would be no surprise to see the filly Bet Lynch improve now tackling handicaps.
