Dino Mite is both fascinating but impossible to assess accurately after coming home by no less than 18l in a Fibresand maiden on the last day of June. it will be interesting to see how the market treats her but she hasn't been set the easiest of tasks on her handicap bow by the handicapper. Spectator seemed to relish the step-up to 1m6f when battling on well to score at Chester and looks on a fair mark whereas Sebastian Beach has received no leniency from the assessor, having failed to follow up a Newmarket success the last twice. Frederic Chopin has an inconsistent profile but definite claims on the evidence of a close course and distance second last time but COSETTE gets the vote. The Candy filly looked unlucky when just failing to reel in Jelly Fish after a troubled passage at Salisbury and looks likely to appreciate the extra quarter mile.
