Yorkshire Rover is penalised for a narrow-margin win over track and trip last week with Shyarch back in fourth. Defining Moment was placed over 5f at Leicester last month but Flower Cup was second over course and distance on her penultimate start and is preferred. AGNETHE is another threatening to get her head in front and found only one too good here on her handicap debut. Paul D’Arcy’s filly may prove good enough with plenty of scope for further progress. Catterick winner My Girl Maisie was due to run at the latter track yesterday.
