Verdict

OUR CAT will strip fitter for her run in a bumper five weeks ago and Fergal O'Brien's winning pointer could be a value alternative against likely market leader Rosa Fleet receiving 7lb. Venetia Williams' mare was beaten at odds-on at Bangor having won a soft race at Market Rasen earlier but still has the beating of Teeton Blackvelvet. Cabaret Girl was second over a similar trip at Huntingdon last time and has further scope for improvement.
