In depth

Verdict

Love Lane showed much-improved form to win at Market Rasen a month ago and is only 5lb higher, though her rider has had his claim reduced. Field Exhibition has rediscovered her form and the champion is in the plate but she is the senior runner in this. SHE’S GINA is back in the right grade after struggling at Fontwell and Hereford and is possibly the pick of the weights in this on her form last spring. Sea Story is almost certainly better than she’s shown so far over timber but Annie Bonny and Queen's Magic are proving hard to place. Lingfield runner-up Lady Chartreuse needs further improvement but Empreinte Reconce makes her handicap debut and is reunited with her winning rider.
