Applause For Amy followed up her Wincanton victory over a shorter trip here last week but the longer trip is a bit of a worry and she also carries a penalty. Border Station was beaten 20 lengths when third at Stratford, and finished behind Bernisdale, but Viacometti went close at Market Rasen 10 days ago and both Businessmoney Judi and Dalrymple have the past form to figure. ROLLING DOUGH could be the answer to this finale as he was always travelling strongly when scoring at Cartmel last month and this looks no tougher.
