BOUSATET will take some beating. She ran on doggedly to catch Mandy's Boy at Thirsk and the assessor may have underestimated her with just a 4lb rise. Black Rider has a course and distance victory to her credit and her two subsequent defeats came in better class but Relight My Fire completed her hat-trick on very fast ground in mid-summer. Fab Lolly looks a bigger threat having won a Redcar maiden before a decent effort here last month.
