Verdict

Although still creeping up in the weights despite not winning, Daniella is hard to get away from in this lowly company and gets the vote over Premier Prospect and Yorke's Folly. The selection is less exposed than many of her rivals and a reproduction of placed efforts in better races than this at Lingfield and Yarmouth in recent outings may well suffice, even off today's higher mark. Bollin Billy has been beaten off the same mark as today in his last three starts but was not beaten far in similar company last time and is entitled to be thereabouts, while Primarily has run with credit in claimers of late and may struggle back in a handicap. A market move for either Daybreak Dancer or As Handsome Does would be of interest, while Premier Prospect showed enough at Ayr last time to suggest that she could take a hand here. Yorke's Folly is another worthy of a mention but Daniella has an obvious chance and gets the vote.
