ILLYSANTACHRISTINA's latest second at Ffos Las was another sound effort and she looks the one to beat here racing off the same mark. Daraz Rose probably has a few too many pounds at the moment, however and Seedless was well beaten off her current mark on her only previous appearance in a handicap, though has probably improved a little since. Accordingtoeileen and Verde Goodwood both have the past form to figure but haven't been out in a while and Maid Of Silk needs to improve on recent efforts to figure.
