JUST THE TIP skated up at Carlisle last week having also won earlier at Musselburgh. She's going to take some stopping here, despite her penalty, and makes more appeal than Perardua who drops back to 5f having raced over further in her last two starts. Mecca's Mirage has finished last in both starts since winning on the Fibresand while Frank The Barber ran poorly at Lingfield after finishing second at Bath. Crystal Wish has looked a little one-paced so far.
