In depth

Verdict

The penny has finally dropped with MISS BLAKENEY and she followed up a maiden win at Wolverhampton with victory over C&D last time. A comfortable four-length winner on that occasion, she can defy a penalty and land the hat-trick. Nave is dropped in class and has every chance as does Jacobs Son who was denied by only a short-head here last week. However, this could prove too competitive for Handheld, fourth in a claimer at this track last time and the remaining duo are even harder to fancy.
