Betting

Forecast

Northern Lyte (7/2), Perfect Grace (7/2), Fragrant Belle (4/1), Aubretia (11/2), Beguiling Charm (11/2), Minnelli (11/1), Dear Miriam (12/1), Takiah (50/1)

Verdict

A tight affair but we'll go with a horse in form and take PERFECT GRACE to handle Class 5 level after scoring with plenty to spare at Bath. She's returned better after a break and can hopefully prove competitive in this higher grade. Beguiling Charm could well do with dropping a few pounds but continues to run well and Northern Lyte is proving consistent for an in-form yard. Dear Miriam needs to improve according to the formbook but Aubretia does drop in grade here and could go well off topweight if handling the step-up in trip. Fragrant Belle is lightly-raced and will be all the better for coming down a couple of pounds and maybe for the drop in trip too
