With two pace angles in this small field it shouldn't be too tactical and that will suit MOTRICE who can complete her hat-trick at the main expense of Park View and Atlantic Tiger. Sir Mark Prescott's daughter of Motivator caught the eye behind Goldtrek at Lingfield in June and has followed that up with facile success at Yarmouth and Haydock. She was always going to improve for this longer trip and on ground that suits and under her 6lb penalty she can win again. Park View ran very well behind Bowdler's Magic at Chester on her handicap debut and with her dam staying well she is expected to improve further now stepped up in distance. Atlantic Tiger transferred his excellent all-weather form from the start of this year to the turf when a gallant third at Sandown. He isn't the quickest so wouldn't want this to become a sprint but with Joe Fanning back on board he should run a big race. Ejteyaaz completes the line-up and the former Kevin Prendergast inmate is not discounted although he has stamina to prove. He also has about six lengths to find with Park View on their Roodee form, however we will take both on with the wildly progressive Motrice.
