Verdict

Rose Marmara has won three times around here and from much higher marks so Brian Rothwell's filly shouldn't be dismissed despite poor recent form. Arabian Jazz was very consistent throughout last season culminating in a Class 5 Sandown victory though a 5lb rise makes this trickier on her reappearance. Rux Ruxx has improved with each run since joining Tim Easterby and is only 3lb higher for her Carlisle victory but this can go to EPONINA. Mick Appleby's filly failed to fire on the all-weather over the winter but dropped in the ratings as a consequence and made all at Chester a couple of weeks ago. She's up 5lb but should have some improvement in her and can go in again as Harvest Day has been looking a few pounds high since scoring at Newcastle in January.
