For Shia And Lula has gone close the last twice now and remains on the same mark. He has the beating of Mrs Biggs on latest running over track and trip. Beverley Bullet was runner-up here recently while Infiniti has been placed in sellers of late. Silver Springs escapes a penalty for winning an apprentices’ race over 6f at Chelmsford and Fashionable Spirit was third at the same track last time and attempts 7f for the first time. SIMPLY ME remains relatively unexposed and was narrowly beaten over 7f at Kempton on her latest start. The winner has subsequently won again so Tom Dascombe’s filly may prove good enough in this.
