Mcconnell has to race off an 8lb higher mark back on the all-weather having won a seller over 1m2f at Brighton and Napinda is preferred after scoring over a mile at the same track last time. Ela Goog La Mou is another who ran well at Brighton on her latest start but in soft ground while the likes of Buaiteoir and Satwa Laird have a shout having slid down the weights. TATTING has to be forgiven a poor effort at Kempton last week but had beaten Crucis Abbey in an apprentices race here before that and gets the vote racing off the same mark today.
