Verdict

Alluring Star has a chance after going close over 7f at Ayr last week and is preferred to Captain Royale, who scored over 5f here last time and has a 6lb rise to contend with. Despite having no experience of soft going, Burren View Lady is another to consider as she has scope for further progress after winning at Wolverhampton. Hab Reeh and Graceful Act look stuck off their current marks but MONAKOVA has slipped down the handicap. She's expected to improve for her fourth at Ripon and earlier form in Ireland suggest David O'Meara's filly will have no problem with the likely soft ground.
