OASIS MIRAGE has improved with every run and could hardly have been more impressive in a Lingfield maiden last time. She makes her handicap debut under a penalty in this very lowly grade and should have few problems completing a double. Dancing Juice won a minor handicap at Redcar in June but has been unable to build on that form while Anytimeatall has been proving very difficult to settle and quickly burning herself out. Reaffirmed has run reasonably well on his last two starts, both on this track though over further, but whether he has the pace for this is another matter.
