Verdict

Cay Dancer continues in good heart and the Newbury winner is sure to have her followers this afternoon with Cam Hardie's claim negating much of her recent rise up the weights. Miss Lucy Jane has a chance to reoppose Richard Hannon's grey at significantly better terms but the pair may have to give best to SCALLOP (NAP). Sir Michael Stoute's filly was backed as if defeat were out of the question at Carlisle, and with the second going on to oblige in a subsequent maiden at the course, we'll take her to make a successful transition into handicaps. Thatchereen has taken time to come to hand though Michael Bell's filly won comfortably at Newbury and she's likely to have gained plenty of confidence for getting her head in front. Bureau clearly thrives on her racing and Mark Johnston's front runner could be a danger to all if allowed to have her own way upfront.
