Nigel Tinkler has sent My Claire on the long journey from Malton and though the filly is a couple of pounds out of the handicap and tackles this trip for the first time she ran very well at Beverley so should get involved. Aminah did better when tackling softer ground at Leicester so could do with some rain, as could Mash Potato, whose victory at Newcastle was gained in ground with plenty of give. Zero Game has yet to reach a place on Turf yet she's higher rated than on the all-weather where she's won twice. COULOIR EXTREME can gain his first success after a very good run behind Duroble Man at Brighton, especially as the winner has since finished runner-up in a better event at Sandown.
