Woteva gained an astonishing 14l success in a Newcastle handicap a couple of weeks ago and has been hit with a 12lb rise. That was on very soft ground and the form looks misleading though Eva Moscrop rode her that day and can again claim her 7lb allowance. Cottam Donny is improving and very nearly made all over 7f here last month. He won't mind the longer trip and quicker ground so should go well. Cathcart Castle has never won on Turf and was beaten in a seller last time so this can go to BARTON BOUNTY. He was ridden by an inexperienced apprentice when finishing strongly behind Harare at Ayr on Wednesday and today's young rider has had plenty of success.
