It was only by half-a-length that Swendab failed to follow up his Ffos Las victory at Chepstow. Another good run looks assured, though he again carries a penalty. We've given up on Welease Bwian after he found nothing when push came to shove at Leicester but Chevise has been knocking on the door lately, though is creeping up the weights despite not winning. Commanche has won his last two, however, though hasn't raced off a mark this high since his two-year-old days. Black Cadillac seems to reserve his best for the Polytrack but the ground should be perfect for OH SO SPICY and she should be fighting-fit now after a couple of runs. Chris Wall's mare gets the nod.
