Vodka Chaser finished ahead of My My My Diliza but never threatened the winner when fifth over track and trip last time. Dandys Perier ran well off today's mark at Wolverhampton after scoring at Southwell but Shamardyh was still beaten six lengths when runner-up on her latest start. Biscuiteer won over 5f on the Polytrack in between modest efforts on the Fibresand, but a chance is taken on handicap debutante ALUMINA in this. She caught the eye staying on for third over the minimum trip here last time and further progress is expected from Andrew Balding's filly today.
