It was no surprise to see Lynngale beaten last time racing off an 8lb higher mark for winning at Brighton. But Eastward Ho finished closer here last week having tumbled down the weights and Hidden Asset posted a better effort at Leicester off today's mark recently. Stanlow and Yorksters Prince are usually thereabouts without being good enough so ELA GOOG LA MOU is taken to follow-up her recent five length win at Yarmouth given she escapes a penalty in this.
