    Verdict

    Lucky Di is 6lb higher than her win at Wolverhampton in September but still went close over 7f here recently. James Bond Girl never figured last time having won a maiden race at Southwell before that while Invade has also struggled since landing a maiden at Chelmsford. Heartsong has yet to win on the all-weather and can race off a much lower mark on this surface as a consequence but another chance goes to DILGURA, who may not be the most reliable but went close in a higher grade over track and trip in December.
