Verdict

There's no course form to consider so punters are left guessing regarding the surface. AMINAH has slipped 8lb down the weights since joining Robert Cowell early this year and, after a recent fourth at Kempton, she gets a speculative vote. Point of Control is not easily dismissed off her current mark and Helamis could also figure if proving suited to the track. Mystery Drama has plenty of scope on her handicap debut but the remainder are mainly exposed and harder to fancy.
