In depth

Verdict

Along Came Rosie won off a higher mark over fences three runs ago but has been pulled up twice since and is probably best watched again here. Matrow's Lady showed a willing attitude to overhaul Beyeh at Doncaster last time, however, and should go close again despite a 7lb higher mark while Golden Sparkle has been placed in all six starts over timber so far and now tries her luck in handicaps. DETOUR AHEAD looks to be on an upward curve and got off the mark at Wetherby last month despite still showing signs of inexperience. She gets a tentative vote as course winner Wheyaye returns from a lay-off.
