Victorious over 5f at Haydock (good-to-firm) on her penultimate outing. Disappointed subsequently however and races off a mark 3lb higher than for that Haydock victory.

Finished a close fourth over this trip at Beverley (good-to-firm) last time out. Turned out relatively quickly and is worth a check in the market here.

Made a winning reappearance over C&D on soft ground in April. Struggled since however and would appreciate any overnight rain.

Betting

Forecast

Midnight Malibu (6/4), Rosina (3/1), Merry Banter (10/3), Rose Marmara (11/2), Machree (6/1), Lydiate Lady (8/1), Kavora (33/1)

Verdict

MERRY BANTER looks capable of taking this competitive fillies contest and in the process reverse Haydock form with Midnight Malibu. The pair were separated by two lengths that day and can fill the first two places here with Kavora, who debuts in handicap company here capable of finishing third.
  1. Merry Banter
  2. Midnight Malibu
  3. Kavora
