She's In The Money is not one to ignore however KIWI BAY runs this track equally well and is preferred to Game Lad and Beckermet. Michael Dods has his horses in great form and this experienced five-year-old looks ready to win. He was beaten as a favourite at Pontefract last time out but his form on quick ground last year reads well and he should get the strong pace to chase that he needs. Stablemate The Osteopath is not ignored despite a penchant for soft ground, Dubai Dynamo caught the eye at Thirsk last time out but got loose on the way to the start at Chester last week and needs to be better behaved, whilst Beckermet should not be given an easy lead if the other jockeys want to peg him back. She's In The Money won tidily on her reappearance but then flopped at Thirsk. She looks high enough in the weights now but the return of Paul Hanagan in the saddle may mean a better run. Aldermoor is edging down the weights but the grader is reluctant to give his trainer Stuart Williams too much rope, Floor Show has improved with each start for his new yard, whilst Reel Buddy Star and the impressive recent scorer Game Lad are two more course and distance winners to pay respect to. A wonderfully competitive handicap full of wise performers but the tentative vote goes to Kiwi Bay.
