Scarborough was well beaten in today's higher grade in between landing a couple of Class 6 events and carries a penalty for last week's victory. The front-running Razin' Hell ran below par behind him last time but had earlier beaten EVA CLARE over track and trip. However, Karl Burke's filly re-opposes on better terms with Joey Haynes taking a further 5lb off her back and she can take her revenge. Under Approval won his maiden here at the turn of the year and went close on his latest outing at Wolverhampton.
