Isstoora opened her account over a mile at Southwell and returns to handicap company under a leading amateur. Becky Smith partnered Quoteline Direct to victory at Nottingham last month while Beepeecee was third at Lingfield recently and today’s rider claims 7lb. Barnaby Brook and BERLUCSCA were both placed over track and trip on their latest starts with the latter finishing ahead of Archipeligo having tumbled down the weights this year. Another bold bid is expected and he’s gets the nod in a competitive opener.
