Chris Wall's runners are always worth a second look here and OH SO SPICY has solid claims today. A C&D winner last month, she ran really well off her new mark at Warwick next time and, though put up a further 2lb since, is on the upgrade and should go close again. Suzy Alexander is penalised for her maiden win at Bath but had been knocking on the door in handicaps previously and is not without a chance. Bianca De Medici was raised 6lb for a narrow win at Windsor in July, but Katy's Secret was only beaten a short-head on the Polytrack at Wolverhampton after winning here last month and Chepstow winner Darcey is still well treated on her old form.
