Verdict

WHAT A DIVA was only just beaten over the trip at Exeter and was well supported at Warwick next time but failed to sparkle. She's better than that and can lose her maiden tag in a very moderate handicap. Squeeze Me landed a slightly lower grade event by a short-head at Cartmel on New Year's Day and has gone up 4lb while Lyme Park has struggled since her second at Towcester in November. Viking Mistress has struggled in two starts over fences since a decent third over timber at Hereford and though winning point-to-pointer Margaret's Rose is making her handicap debut from a lowly mark she's shown nothing so far, nor has Raising Hope.
