SHELAGH is worth sticking with here. She won her maiden at Kempton in March and wasn't seen again until making a winning reappearance over C&D just 10 days ago. There should be more to come from Jo Crowley's filly and she's preferred to another unexposed sort in Chokidar, who won a maiden by six lengths at Wolverhampton last time. Pipers Piping is facing a tougher task off a higher mark having won at the same track last week, but Bold Ring is a winner without a penalty as she bids for her a hat-trick after landing an apprentice race over track and trip on her latest start.
