Poetic Choice was so impressive at Salisbury, where she overcame her saddle slipping for a 4l victory, that the assessor has raised her 9lb. Moonspring has won four times on Polytrack though has yet to be placed in three starts on Turf but the handicapper has relaxed his grip on Finflash, though his only success came on soft ground. He's My Boy didn't run badly at Nottingham and has been dropped 2lb but this can go to AUTUMNS BLUSH. She hasn't seen much action after landing a Yarmouth maiden last May but looked ready to win soon with a fair run in a better race than this at Ascot on Sunday.
