Not a race for the faint-hearted but Tim Easterby has won three of the last seven renewals and MARGRETS GIFT can finally get off the mark. The filly was backed off the boards at Hamilton prior to achieving the fourth runners-up prize of her career, and having ran well previously at Ripon, she has more positives than most. Stablemate, Traditionelle didn't do a lot wrong in a recent handicap over course and distance and she could be the biggest danger to our selection. Richard Fahey's uses George Chaloner's claim in order to help McCarthy Mor break his duck at the ninth time of asking. Bay Street Belle hasn't offered a great deal in three maidens and David Barron's filly is accordingly watched in the market on her first start in a handicap. Bearskin drops in trip and continues in the visor he wore at Catterick last time.
