Verdict

Both First Beauty and Illysantachristina reappear after a few months off but Tweedledrum finished third at Fontwell earlier this month, though is still a maiden. Synthe Davis is back on a fair mark and wasn't beaten far at Kempton last time but Countess Comet looks less favourably treated and, after 15 runs over hurdles, Seedless may not have much further improvement remaining. JOSH'S DREAMWAY landed a gamble at Exeter on her penultimate start and again attracted market support in a Listed handicap at Newbury last month, despite racing from 7lb out of the handicap. Off her correct mark today, she can recoup losses.
