Verdict

LULU THE ZULU won a Class 3 handicap at Nottingham last time and carries top weight in this lower grade race. She can confirm running with Ray Of Joy and go in again. Gran Canaria Queen has a 9lb rise to contend with having landed a double with victory at Haydock a fortnight ago while Dartrix has struggled off her current mark since scoring at Ayr last month. Silkelly is another in need of some respite from the handicapper.
