SUNLEY SPINALONGA looks well-treated here, and carries our backing in preference to Marjury Daw and Ashkalara. Sunley Spinalonga is going well this season and landed the spoils last time out. Further progress is expected, and the slight drop in trip looks sensible. The race she won was modest enough, but she ran well and looks to have another within her at this sort of level. Marjury Daw narrowly missed completing a four-timer last out, but may be in the grip of the handicapper now. Although having her best ever season, she's rated eight pounds higher than her previous highest winning mark. Her draw isn't the best either. Ashkalara is heading the right way too, and her best form has come when racing with other fillies, and she's got plenty in hand at the weights. Preference though is for Sunley Spinalonga.
