Verdict

In an interesting race, Godfrey Maundrell's TAMBURA is just given the nod despite the steadier of top weight. All five of her career wins have come under amateur Zack Baker and he is back on board today, so the pair should give it a really good shot. Receiving lumps of weight, Act Now is a big danger having fairly hacked up at Plumpton on Moday. She should make a real race of it, as too should Socksy, who won here over a shorter distance last time, but handles the ground and represents a yard in good form. What a Diva also has claims, but off her new mark may just find one or two too good. 1. Tambura 2. Act Now 3. Socksy
