Pineapple Rush (11/4), Lucca Lady (7/2), Kupatana (9/2), Cabaret Queen (9/2), Passing Call (6/1), Hermanus (10/1), Ginge de Sophia (22/1), Valdas Princess (33/1)

Verdict

Pineapple Rush makes her handicap debut here and should go well, though top-weight won't be easy and preference is for PASSING CALL. Alan King's charge ran well at Stratford last time out when shaping as if this longer trip should suit, and in first-time cheek pieces she can progress again to get off the mark here. Lucca Lady finished ahead of the selection last time out and could be third best.
  1. Passing Call
  2. Pineapple Rush
  3. Lucca Lady
