In depth

Verdict

Alizee De Janeiro’s recent wins have been over shorter trips and Tokaramore finished a close-up fourth over 2m at Musselburgh last time. Sarvi was also placed over a shorter distance at Musselburgh recently while the more experienced West Coast Lass goes handicapping for the first time and could also figure. CHAMPAGNE TO GO struggled in testing going at Ayr on her latest outing but beat the re-opposing Secret Escape when winning over 2m4f on good ground at Sedgefield before that and Rebecca Menzies’ mare gets a speculative vote in what looks something of a lottery.
