Bishop Wulstan finished fourth on his handicap debut at Bath but Richard Hughes rides Dancing Sal, dropped 5lb after failing to figure at Lingfield on her latest start in January. Clapperboard did well to finish as close as she did to the higher rated Seek The Fair Land in a claimer on the Polytrack last time and can figure but the vote to goes to STARLITE JEWEL. She wasn't beaten far when fourth at Yarmouth and will not have to improve much on that to go close in this company. Both Tubeanie and Nutbush slip further down the weights but will need to step up on recent efforts to figure.
