GALACTIC HEROINE won a maiden contest at Doncaster last month and a winner has already come out of the race. This longer trip should not be a problem and James Given's filly can make a winning handicap debut. Penhill is now 12lb higher than when scoring at Nottingham in April and Moontown has to be forgiven a poor effort at Sandown last time. Stanarley Plc is steadily improving and should be thereabouts again given his half-brother won over today's distance.
