Plenty with claims in a wide-open contest. Attraction Ticket is up 8lb having landed a double on the Polytrack last month while Livia's Dream and Whipcrackaway attempt a longer trip after placed efforts on their latest starts. Instrumentalist and Napoleon's Muse may figure dropped in class but it could pay to concentrate on the handicap debutants. Openly is likely to improve on her latest third over 1m3f at this track and Maria Letizia ran her best race to date when stepped up to 1m5f at Lingfield last time. However, SHADA kept on well for third place over today's trip at Wolverhampton a fortnight ago and she gets the vote to open her account in this.
