Coquine, Dark Confidant and Dark Forest were all beaten off similar marks to today's last time having won their penultimate starts. It remains to be seen if Wink Oliver and Murdanova fare any better off today’s higher marks having won at this track and Kempton respectively on their latest outings and it could be the turn of CAPTAIN BOB today. The latter is looking to end a long losing run but tumbled down the weights last year and went close over track and trip on last month’s reappearance. Ducissa makes her handicap debut on her return to action and is preferred of the remainder.
