Ironically has a penalty for Wednesday's victory at Sedgefield but should strip fitter for that run and can't be discounted against her own sex. Dubaianswer is still a maiden over hurdles and ran poorly on the Flat last time while the jury is still out on Racey Lacey and Carhue Princess is only a plater. COOL BARANCA finally took advantage of a tumbling mark to score at Ayr last week and, despite a 4lb rise, is still well treated on her best form. She should be hard to beat again in this lower grade.
