ELIZABETH FLYNN, who now sports a visor, has been taking on better opposition in the main and can get back on track here. She was only beaten a neck the last time she contested a claimer and is just preferred to Low Cut Affair, who has been kept busy lately though didn't run badly over 6f on the Polytrack at Lingfield last Wednesday and did score over the minimum at Windsor in the spring. Jonny Sorrento makes more appeal than Saphira Silver of the others but is unlikely to threaten the two previous winners.
