Bumper winner Sherry won a maiden over today's distance at Thirsk last month and both placed horses have won since. But she has to give plenty of weight to the younger fillies including Triple Dip. The latter is dropped in class after a third at Musselburgh but had earlier finished behind Graceland when the latter was second at Nottingham. Michael Bell's filly should go well again but THE TEMPEST gets another chance. Well beaten dropped in distance last time, she had won a maiden over track and trip before that and should get the better of Grey's Angel, currently suffering from a bad case of seconditis.
