The boot is now on the other foot for Anay Turge as he was receiving weight all round when picking up a penalty at Chepstow on Wednesday. Rimini went backwards last season while Whatshallwedo is still 12lb higher than when winning at Sedgefield in May. LADY WILLA was last of four on her reappearance at Plumpton but wasn't beaten far and is only 2lb higher than when successful at Chepstow on soft going in February. Mark Gillard's mare gets the nod in this.
