    Verdict

    Botanist won an amateur's race at Leicester last month and Roxy Lane won at Brighton a fortnight ago. Both face a tougher task in this though Zeteah should go well again after returning a cosy two length winner at Salisbury last time. But SUMMERLING went close in the other division of Zeteah's handicap at Salisbury with Dark Phantom well beaten. Phil McEntee's filly has tumbled 16lb down the weights since her first start handicapping and looks set to finally get off the mark. Arizona Snow is another looking to take advantage off his current mark but is unproven over the trip.
