Verdict

Alluring Star has been threatening a return to winning ways and should be thereabouts once again and the same comment applies to Master Of Song. Boy The Bell won an amateurs race over track and trip last month with Lil Sophella close-up in third and those two are hard to separate. AMETHYST DAWN just failed to catch the winner at Lingfield on her penultimate start and given her high draw is not too much of a hindrance on this straight 7f, Alan McCabe's mare gets the nod.
