Verdict
Lizzie Kelly had a winner here on Wednesday and she could get a good spin round from MONSIEUR LECOQ who looks well-handicapped after his effort at Sandown last week when out of the handicap. It's a wide-open renewal but We Have A Dream should appreciate the return to soft ground; he's got the class to win this and ran well last time out. Countister looks like an exciting mare to follow and could make her presence felt if she's ready to go on return.
  1. Monsieur Lecoq
  2. We Have A Dream
  3. Countister
