Speedyfix beat Sarah Berry when scoring at Yarmouth last month but is now 10lb higher than his win over track and trip in March. Nafa beat a below-par Haadeeth in a seller here last time and is chasing a hat-trick back in handicap company but a chance is taken on CATFLAP. She's yet to win but has been getting closer as she's slipped down the weights and Rosie Jessop's 5lb allowance and a drop in class could make all the difference today. Pucon can figure with a recent comeback run under her belt and Commanding Presence can race off a lower mark back on the all-weather.
