Verdict

It is hard to build a convincing case for any of these. Icanmotor looks sure to attract plenty of support having gone so close on her stable debut last time. The fact she has gone up 6lb for that effort and is yet to win in 28 attempts makes her unattractive at the forecast odds. LILLIAN has won a couple of races and her yard are going really well at present. She finished third when supported last time but that was her first outing in almost three months. That run may have been needed and she can give a more honest account here. The rest make little appeal and Hija may prove the pick of them for place honours.
