Verdict

There's no winning form to consider so RATHEALY's third at Warwick on his handicap debut looks the best form on offer. Alan Bailey's charge wasn't beaten far in a Class 4 race and has a much easier task in this. He's also less exposed than Sakhalin Star, who went close in this grade at Ayr last time, but By The Light has slipped a few pounds down the weights on the back of modest efforts in handicaps. Mimbleberry appears to be treading water off her current mark but Assoluta finished closer last time and may be capable of better still.
