This is the biggest field of the day but the bottom half-dozen are all racing from out of the handicap. Cheekpieces would need to improve Wiff Waff but Wild Dancer could figure having been lightly raced this year. Jaganory has been thereabouts in this grade over the summer and Ask The Guru is also a course and distance winner. KNOCKABOUT QUEEN has shown herself to be better than a plater in recent starts at Brighton. This track is similar in nature and Tony Carroll’s filly should be in the firing-line again if still at the top of her game. Miss Gargar won at Wolverhampton two weeks ago but is best on the all-weather.
