Verdict

Mayfield Girl has paid the price for her two victories in April and looks to have too much weight to concede to in-form rivals. PIPERS NOTE loves fast ground and was a very unlucky loser at Pontefract last time so is handed the vote to gain compensation. Nurpur gained her first victory on her 12th start at Catterick but is on such a lenient mark that a follow-up has to be considered. Shrimper Roo is running very well and stayed on strongly at the finish over this course and distance last time while Right Touch is only 5lb higher than when scoring here in April and ran well from his new mark at Haydock last time.
