Ran well when finishing third over hurdles at Perth (2m4f, good) in May. Previously a decent fifth over an extended 1m4f at Musselburgh (good-to-firm) and is interesting on return from a break.

Betting

Forecast

Arms Of The Angel (15/8), Donnachies Girl (4/1), Four Kingdoms (9/2), Shine Baby Shine (7/1), Three Castles (15/2), Kajaki (9/1), Spark Of War (12/1), Doon Star (14/1), Question Of Faith (22/1), Lizzie Loch (33/1)

Verdict

SHINE BABY SHINE ran well over C&D earlier this season and having run well last time out she can register her first victory of the campaign in the final race on the card. Arms Of The Angel has placed on each of her last two starts and she can claim second stepping up in trip while third place can go to Spark Of War who finished a close third on his most recent outing.
