slolwly into stride, held up in rear, headway over 2f out, not clear run approaching final furlong, switched left entering final furlong, strong run to 2nd last strides, unable to reach winner
I'm A Doughnut produced a better effort over 5f at Beverley last time and the return to this longer trip should suit. Wish Again is dropping down a grade after finishing second at Hamilton last time in soft ground and it was also slow going when SWEET OVATION was well beaten at Chepstow last time. She'd earlier won at the same track on a fast surface and is effectively 4lb better off here thanks to Rachel Kneller's claim. Guava and Flosse have been below par recently but have claims on their earlier form.
