Ted Durcan could afford to ease down INTERCEPTION once she'd taken the lead over track and trip a fortnight ago and she won with plenty in hand. She makes more appeal than Tiger's Home, a recent winner at Bath, and can follow up making her handicap debut. Available has been thereabouts at this track of late without being good enough while Balatina has failed to get involved in three subsequent starts since scoring over the minimum trip here back in April. Yarmouth winner Alhaarth Beauty has also struggled off higher marks recently and it was heavy ground when Camache Queen finished a close-up fourth at Windsor last time.
