Verdict

This is a tough handicap to unravel but BLACK DAHLIA has been in fine form of late and looks the percentage call while both Millfield and Defector are others to consider. The selection got her head in front at Leicester last month and lost nothing in defeat at Warwick last time out after finishing a close second to Cheam Forever. She does however have seven extra pounds to carry this time around so a personal best will be required. Millfield won a claimer at this venue on his penultimate start and then went on to finish second behind Trade Centre in a handicap over course and distance. He clearly acts around this track so he should be noted in the betting market for any support. Defector also won at this venue on his penultimate outing but was well held at Southwell last time out. Back on his favoured surface he is another to add to the short list.
