Verdict

Dubious Escapade and LOLITA LEBRON won separate divisions of the same handicap at Beverley on their latest starts. The latter won her maiden at this track, however, and that may give her the edge today. Eightfold has slipped down the weights and posted a slightly better effort at Nottingham last time while Regal Acclaim continued her improvement when scoring on her reappearance at Catterick though she's up another 5lb here. Sabhan is less exposed than most and is worth a second glance on his return to action.
