Layla's Oasis failed to cope with a penalty for her earlier win at Musselburgh when only fourth at Windsor and has been raised a further 2lb. SOLEMN has been creeping closer as he slips down the weights and after a recent third over track and trip, Milton Bradley's charge gets a tentative vote. Neither Speightowns Kid nor Pull The Pin could follow-up recent wins off higher marks last time and the latter finished behind Shawkantango at Nottingham. Cadeaux Pearl has tumbled down the weights and will be taking advantage before long.
