BATCHWORTH LADY made a winning handicap debut at Lingfield in March when beating today's rival Balatina by a nose. The latter has since boosted the form with a victory at Wolverhampton but re-opposes on worse terms after an 8lb rise and Dean Ivory's filly can confirm superiority and land this. Shirley's Pride couldn't cope with a 6lb rise at Catterick last time having won at the same track earlier but Tregereth has slipped down the handicap and should finish closer as a consequence.
