A fillies' handicap that shouldn't take too much winning and MY SISTER is given the vote ahead of Snoqualmie Star and Broughtons Paradis. The selection has proved herself over this trip and put in a good run when staying on to claim second over a mile at Chepstow last time. She acts on any ground, which is a plus with the possiblilty of rain changing conditions, and she is given the vote. Snoqualmie Star has to shoulder a 6lb penalty for success at Kempton last time out, when she looked like she had finally grasped the nettle in handicaps. However, in spite of her pedigree she has yet to prove that she gets this far and given that and the extra weight we will take her on. Broughtons Paradis has no issues on that score and acts on any ground with good in the description, but she keeps going up a little in the weights without winning and with that profile we will oppose. Tartaria should be monitored in the market now handicapping for the first time from a mark of just 66, while Quiquillo has frame claims, though My Sister is preferred.
