Refreshestheparts keeps digging out a bit more and won an apprentices race over C&D last week. A winner without a penalty, she'll go close again though AVERTIS is just preferred. The latter finished ahead of today's rival and previous winner Bladewood Girl when runner-up at Kempton last time and looks set to end a long losing run off his current mark. Multiple Polytrack winner Spin Again has yet to score over further than 7f and this is much tougher than the classified event Whinging Willie was beaten a nose in at Wolverhampton last month.
