No winning form on offer in a weak contest but OPTIMICKSTICKHILL was beaten less than a length over track and trip on her handicap debut. Scott Dixon’s filly stands out on that form while Lady Lintera has been thereabouts at Wolverhampton lately and can also figure if taking to the surface. The latter has the beating of Kylie Style on latest running while Pas De Blanc is preferred to Harvest Day now handicapping for the first time.
