BOSAMCLIFF bounced back to form with a win at Uttoxeter last week. She has 7lb extra to carry but little to beat in this and may well follow up. Oscar Stanley has a good run at Carlisle back in April to his credit and Dance For Livvy made the frame at Warwick early in the year and has had a recent run. Circus Star is down another 3lb but looks no nearer winning while Red Whisper found a 4lb rise for scoring at Hereford beyond her when beaten at Towcester last time. Thenford Flyer may prove best of the remainder.
