A quartet of these enter the fray in winning form and it's one of them, RURAL CELEBRATION, who is handed the verdict. David O'Meara's filly scored over 5f here in August and followed a fair reappearance on fast ground at Beverley with a smooth success on soft going at Catterick on Friday. She won't mind the extra furlong and a penalty shouldn't prevent a quick follow-up. Dreese was having just his third start when completing a double at Wolverhampton but this is tougher with a 6lb rise to contend with while Sitting Pritty had little to beat in a maiden at Catterick, though couldn't have done it any easier. Boy In The Bar came in for heavy support when beaten on his reappearance at Nottingham but his supporters gained compensation when he won comfortably on soft ground at Pontefract and he looks well treated for his handicap debut. But One Boy went up a massive 10lb for landing the odds in a Newcastle handicap so it was no surprise when he was well beaten in a much better race at York.
