Scommettitrice will be winning again soon judged on her recent placed efforts and she has the beating of Ishetoo and Microlight on last month's running at this track. SPELLMAKER also went close over track and trip last month having beaten Do More Business at Lingfield before that. Collateral form suggests Tony Newcombe's charge can take care of Mary's Pet and Slatey Hen and return to winning ways in this company. Victorian Number hasn't raced since December but is on a decent mark if anywhere near his best on his return to action.
