Whaleweigh Station was winning for the first time since 2014 when successful over 7f here last time and is upped 4lb. Mr Chuckles was ahead of National Service when runner-up at Wolverhampton off today’s mark while Fossa was not beaten far when third at the same track recently. Teepee Time was second over 5f last time but a speculative vote goes to JUST OVER, who was having her first start since May when beaten at Wolverhampton earlier this month and may do better in this lowly grade now handicapping for the first time.
