Verdict

Bisoubisou scored over the trip at Fakenham in December and again ran well when runner-up there last week though she wouldn't want any more rain. Schap was behind in that latter event and appeared to have every chance but SEE FOREVER has shown potential and makes her handicap debut. Paul Webber's mare gets the nod as Quasha has yet to reach a place in 10 starts and her best run was over further but Mabela won a bumper here in 2017 and has been lightly raced subsequently. Petronella Manners is very inconsistent though ran her best race here a year ago and, though carrying a big weight, this won't take much winning.
