A penalty means that TWO TURTLE DOVES will have to defy a welter burden to complete her hat-trick and this will be her first run over 6f this season. However, weight can often mean little in races like this and Michael Mullineaux' mare is in much better form than her rivals and also a previous course and distance winner. Amis Reunis is 9b higher than when winning here in June but has been knocking on the door again lately and conditions will suit The Strig. Red Invader disappointed when favourite at Lingfield last time and has yet to win on Turf but A J Cook is respected on his third at Catterick and is still tumbling down the weights.
