Ann Duffield runs a couple of newcomers with jockey bookings suggesting Focusofourthoughts is preferred to Garfunkel, though neither will need to be anything special to figure in this company on their debuts. White Flag has done the best so far of Tim Easterby's three runners with a fifth at Ripon a fortnight ago while Scoreline may finish closer having been quietly fancied on his debut at Beverley back in May. RED BIBA was having her first start since April when third at Southwell last month and Alan McCab'e filly gets the speculative vote to improve further and land this.
