Verdict

Napinda beat Shearian at Southwell but came up short off a higher mark at Lingfield last time while Luv U Whatever is another recent winner on the Fibresand and is 6lb higher today. World Freight Girl and Rainford Glory finished upsides over track and trip last time and should be in the mix but CLOSE TOGETHER is preferred. She wasn't disgraced in a couple of outings over 1m2f earlier this month and will appreciate the return to today's shorter trip as Robert Mills' filly won her maiden over a mile at Lingfield in October. Limoges and Alshan Fajer are handicap debutants to note.
