Verdict

DESERT COLOURS looks the safest bet in a low grade handicap. He bids for a treble after scoring twice at Wolverhampton earlier in the month, including a defeat of the re-opposing Choice Of Destiny. The latter wasn't beaten far so has to come into the reckoning while Witchy Woman had also gone close at Wolverhampton before a below-par effort at Lingfield last month. The Dukkerer ran well without winning last year but will need more on her reappearance if she's to figure ahead of Brownsville, who drops down a grade after making the frame over 6f at Southwell last week.
