There's still more to come from the filly KATHLEEN FRANCES and she can win again. An improver since going handicapping, Mark Tompkins' charge showed when winning at Goodwood that this ground holds no fears and she is only 4lb higher today. Maybe I Wont is another going the right way, a comment that also applies to Pertemps Networks who has found himself very well-handicapped in recent months and has taken advantage accordingly. George Adamson's best form has come on quicker ground, so bigger threats today might be Leslingtaylor who like the forecast going and Porgy who looks dangerously well-handicapped. Alsahil has been smashed by the handicapper for his facile Pontefract win, whilst Beat The Rush, Arizona John and Tepmokea are all consistent and not to be taken lightly.
