In depth

Verdict

There are races to be won with Forever Waining while What A Good Night was well backed at Bangor earlier this month. Morestead is useful on his day while Transfer has run several times on the Flat since finishing third to PRINCESSE FLEUR here in May. Michael Scudamore's mare goes well here, however, and won over 2m2f on the level at Chepstow last month. She may be the one to beat again today at the weights as Millie O'Brien disappointed when favourite at Newton Abbot last time.
