Forecast

Oakley Mimosa (7/4), Lulu Star (6/1), Boscastle (6/1), Lily Ash (7/1), Carvelas (8/1), Ronni Layne (14/1), Hidden Dream (16/1), Indigo Princess (16/1), Just Fab (20/1), Approaching Menace (20/1), Fading Icon (20/1), Shamonix (33/1), Navajo Grey (50/1)

Verdict
Oakley Mimosa just caught Ronni Layne over this C&D and both can be involved again with the former open to more progress. Carvelas is also suited by conditions and can go well while Lily Ash and Hidden Dream may find the extra test suitable. Despite running from just outside the handicap preference is for APPROACHING MENACE who had shown little in three starts but could be ahead of her mark after a fine handicap debut despite being hampered early and not getting a clear run late on.
  1. Approaching Menace
  2. Oakley Mimosa
  3. Ronni Layne
