A competitive handicap rounds off proceedings, and our support goes to the in-form OUR DRAMA QUEEN, ahead of My Best Bet and Petomic. Our Drama Queen has plenty in hand at the weights with My Best Bet, despite being rated only three pounds lower. A winner last time out, she's lightly raced and shown improvement each time out, and the victory last time around came when dropped out from a poor draw and when she found some trouble in running too. My Best Bet is on a ten race losing streak, but regularly gets placed. She's giving weight away all round, and is perhaps better on the all-weather. Petomic's attitude was questioned after his second place last month in his first run since November, but he may behave today after that experience. Quite a few here are likely to carry some support, but ours goes to Our Drama Queen.
