Verdict
What's The Story is perhaps the most interesting making his handicap debut. He won a maiden at Musselburgh in April on his reappearance and hasn't been spotted since. The handicapper hasn't been especially tough and he is worth close scrutiny in the betting now. The filly Lady In Question has been a model of consistency lately and while this might be her toughest test yet, she can go well again. Boots And Spurs had her behind when scoring at Catterick last time and is respected along with Hajjam, not beaten far over C&D a fortnight ago. GOLDEN AMBER shaped well in a big-field 6f handicap here in April, amidst some solid AW efforts this year. She's rated 4lb lower now and was surely in need of the outing at Goodwood last month. With that behind her, she could run well at price in a wide open contest.
  1. Golden Amber
