YOUNG DOTTIE ticks plenty of boxes in this fillies' handicap and we will put her forward to outgun Vertigo On Course and Goodbye Cash. It was a disappointing effort from our selection at Lingfield last time but she failed to get home over the distance and the drop back in trip is a big plus for her today. She had previously won well over a mile at Lingfield and from a good draw she can make her presence felt this afternoon. Vertigo On Course has yet to win on the all-weather but she showed enough at Lingfield last time to suggest that her turn might not be far away. Goodbye Cash had been in good form prior to a flop at Wolverhampton and she is arguably at her best over 7f. Perfect Class wasn't beaten all that far here earlier in the month and on these terms a case can be made for her taking home some place money. However, a stronger case is made for Young Dottie and she gets our nomination.
