Verdict

The last time Hells Babe ran at this level she won a York handicap but that was over two years ago and she's still 6lb higher. Chynna has also been running in better company since scoring on the Knavesmire last summer and her latest run can be ignored as she didn't handle the very heavy ground. Princes Des Sables completed a four-timer in nurseries last summer before a fine run in a conditions' race at Newbury and probably needed her comeback but if DAFFY JANE runs as well as she did in a Class 2 handicap at York last month she would take some beating. Dizzy G completed a hat-trick on fast going last summer though didn't run well at Doncaster in May and though Cale Lane has been going well she's taking a step up in grade.
