PORT HOLLOW made all to score over a mile here on her reappearance, beating a subsequent winner by over four lengths. She looks on a fair mark for her handicap debut given that improvement looks assured and Charlie Hills' filly gets the nod. Eclipseoftheheart is another lightly-raced recent winner at this track and looks the main danger ahead of C&D winner Requisite and Barathea Dancer, whose earlier second at Sandown gives her every chance. Polar Annie has been in good form on the turf and is another to consider on the back of a recent win at Chepstow.
