In depth

Verdict

Floral Spinner blew another good chance at Huntingdon last week and has become expensive to follow. Bunglasha Lady is hardly one to rely on having been pulled up in two of her three starts this term but a visor could bring about some improvement in Big Time Billy and Matrow's Lady has won at Doncaster and Ffos Las this season. She did it very easily at the Welsh track last time and Chris Sheehan's claim wipes out her penalty but GRASSFINCH may have her measure over this longer trip. Renee Robeson's mare has won twice over 3m so it was to her credit that she went close in a jumpers' bumper at Lingfield last month. Thedeboftheyear has the past form to figure but Toot Sweet has plenty on her plate.
