Verdict

Military Madame appeared well suited by the 1m trip here last time with the sharp test looking to suit her and she does come from a yard (John Quinn) who have a terrific strike-rate at the moment. The extra 1f may just stretch her stamina though and ODDS ON OLI is preferred after his disappointing run at Ayr last time (well supported) when things didn’t go to plan with cheekpieces (now removed) on for the first time. The stronger gallop he’s likely to get from the likes of Danzay should be more suitable for him here. Plansina wasn’t seen to best effect last time and she’s a danger if she can cope with her new mark.
