Verdict

Major Muscari was winning for the first time this year when successful over course and distance but a 5lb rise is off-putting. Pearl Noir is upped 4lb after beating Douneedahand, Insolenceofoffice and Interchoice Star over 5f here last week and should be thereabouts but the frustrating Lucky Mark was placed yet again on his latest start. The lightly-raced RANDOM (NAP) makes more appeal on her handicap debut after a recent comeback at Redcar and she gets the vote.
