    Verdict

    WALIYAK hails from last year’s winning yard and drops in class with an apprentice’s allowance in her favour. She looks worth another chance with the slower going not a problem but Lottie Marie ran below par in soft ground at Windsor last time having placed at the same track earlier. The remaining trio step up in trip and Folk Dance has been raised 6lb for winning at Newmarket while Melnikova is fitted with headgear after a disappointing effort at Ascot on her handicap bow. Little Becky went close in novice company at Yarmouth and may figure.
