Verdict

Catawollow is the only one of these platers with a recent victory to her name but she's notoriously difficult to predict. MY VIKING BAY was sent off favourite at Lingfield last time on the back of an improved fourth at Huntingdon. She was well beaten but now drops into a seller for the first time and could easily gain compensation against very modest opposition. Jasmin Rai and Casco Bay have shown a little ability in the past but are hard to recommend on recent efforts.
