Forecasts

Eglantine Du Seuil (5/2), Sexy Lot (3/1), Regarding Ruth (10/3), Bourbon Beauty (7/2), Molly Ollys Wishes (11/2), The Bay Birch (6/1), Yeavering Belle (6/1), Little River Bay (8/1), Bannixtown Glory (9/1), Irish Roe (10/1), Another Theatre (12/1), She'sasupermack (16/1), Our Dot's Baby (28/1)

Verdict

This is tougher than the Newbury handicap REGARDING RUTH landed last month, but she did the job in good style and an 8 lb rise may not be enough to prevent her from following up. Sexy Lot has enjoyed a terrific campaign and is feared greatly on the back of another personal best at Haydock 12 days ago, while Little River Bay and Bourbon Beauty are others to consider.

  1. REGARDING RUTH (IRE)
  2. SEXY LOT (GER)
  3. LITTLE RIVER BAY (IRE)
