It's safe to ignore MARKSBURY's last three runs as she's much better on Polytrack and only a couple of pounds higher than when successful over C&D in April. Mark Brisbourne's mare can return to winning ways here, even though she is closely matched with Fortunate Bid on another run in the spring. George Downing's claim will help Bold Diva while Little Perisher was only beaten a neck over 6f here last time, though struggles to stay this far. Royal Box was a close third over this trip at Chepstow 10 days ago but has run a shocker at Brighton since.
