Verdict

It was fast ground when Mey Blossom scored at Beverley last week with Ingenti well beaten but Dream Vale won't mind today's ground and is only 3lb higher than October's win at Redcar. Jofranka has scope for further improvement as she steps up a grade having won over track and trip last month but dual Polytrack winner Sunrise Dance never figured back on the Turf over 6f here on her latest start. GOWANHARRY has raced over course and distance twice now and won on both occasions. Her first victory came on soft ground and Michael Dods' filly can defy a 4lb rise and go in again.
