Verdict

Another open looking handicap and plenty with some sort of chance. BONZA GIRL takes a big step up in trip here but judging by the way she was outpaced for much of her Wincanton run last time before finishing off strongly, there's a good chance she needs it and she may improve plenty for it too. Hollow Park is one of plenty that come with some sort of risk attached but she's no weight and if recapturing some of her better novice form, could go close. We'll Be There is another that could take a big step forward tonight. The market is going to be the best guide as to her chance, a remark that applies to Neetside, Anndarrow and Hoola Hula too.
