Verdict

Lady Monica was a shock winner at Nottingham and it remains to be sen if that was a fluke. Sepahi’s win in March came on Polytrack but Moneta finished ahead of Tie A Yellowribbon over 7f here last week and should confirm the form, though was behind BERYL THE PETAL. David O’Meara’s filly didn’t have much luck that day and certainly wouldn’t be winning out of turn. Ripon third Bedtime Bella is improving with experience and has place claims again.
