Miss Fortywinks lost out by only a head in a battle to the line with Applause For Amy over track and trip. The handicapper has added salt to the wound by raising her 11lb. DANCE also ran well on her latest start when third over these hurdles and given she's dropping down a grade for this, Rod Millman's mare gets the nod. Kruseman remains 7lb higher than his win at Worcester in May and McCoy is back on board Cyclone, who has shown little in three starts so far but is handicapping for the first time today.
