Enchanted Linda won over today’s trip at Ffos Las recently but has to overcome both a penalty and a high draw. Summer Blossom and SABAI SABAI share the same handicap rating and both returned losing favourites last time. But the former has yet to race over 5f and the latter gets the vote on an earlier length defeat at Goodwood when fading only in the closing stages. Bryan Smart can get a newcomer ready for action and Mixed Up Miss is preferred to Up The Millers and the remainder with experience.
