NIMBLE THIMBLE is the least exposed having got off the mark over C&D on only her second outing. She ran out a cosy winner here a fortnight ago and can make a winning start now handicapping. Irish import Noble Jack scored over a shorter trip here on his reappearance and debut for Jo Hughes and there could be more to come form him but Odd Ball's winning run came to end off today's mark back in April and he's having his first start since. Majuro could figure back over a longer trip and Kempton winner Spanish Plume should be capable of better this season.
