A good run from Baileys Forever in the previous race would advertise the claims of Ribbleton, though the latter hasn't shown much progress in his three outings to date. PERCY'S GAL posted a better effort at Redcar, however, and Karen Tutty's filly should go close if handling today's ground. The same comment applies to Nottingham third Sweet Angelica, but Bearskin has more to find on what he's shown so far. The newcomer Takemybreathaway makes little appeal on breeding.
