It's difficult to find one without a chance in this tight handicap. Thatcherite carried a big weight to victory in this class at Beverley before finding another furlong too much in a better race at Pontefract on Friday. Tweety Pie bounced back to form at Beverley a couple of weeks ago and is on the same mark and though Singeur hasn't won since 2012 he's dropped to a lowly mark as a consequence. The minimum trip and fast ground are ideal for Bondi Beach Boy, who should be straight now after two runs this month, while Soul Brother looks set for a big run. Tim Easterby's charge is less exposed than most of these and his latest narrow defeat over the course and distance came in a better race. ROZENE is another who can improve again and she's in foal though it didn't prevent her scoring at Ripon last week and she escapes a penalty as it was an apprentice race.
