Koduro has obviously had her problems as she hasn’t been seen since July of last year. Maulesden May and Sarvi are the only course winners in the line-up. The former is out of sorts and stablemate Summer Daydream looks a better bet but the latter made all at Hamilton last month. Amber Spark is back in the right grade and Fannie By Gaslight could also go well but the vote goes to EVA MARIA, who looked ready for a step up in trip at Pontefract last month and isn’t overburdened running in her first handicap.
