Lastkingofscotland has won over today's trip but may be better over 7f. The same comment applies to Trojan Rocket, who carries a penalty for Monday's win at Wolverhampton, while Katmai River has done all his winning over 7f so far. Dvinsky had Mack's Sister and Vhujon behind over C&D last time but all three have been taking it in turns to beat each other and a speculative vote in a wide-open sprint goes to AMAZING WIN. Charlie Bishop's claim allows her to race off a 5lb lower mark than when runner-up here in December and she's taken to finally open her account today.
