RASTACAP made all to score over 7f at Chepstow last time and won more comfortably than the winning margin suggests. She’ll stay this extra distance on that evidence. Red Force One was beaten less than a length at Chester recently and can figure again off a similar mark but Rippling Waters was still beaten a long way when runner-up in novice company at Lingfield and makes her handicap debut. Wink Oliver is back on a winning mark and preferred to Mister Musicmaster if rediscovering his best.
