Verdict
Roxyfet adores Sedgefield and has struck up a decent rapport with the promising 7lb claimer Emma Smith-Chaston. Micky Hammond has placed his charge extremely well of late seeking to capitalise upon varying handicap marks (hurdles and fences). Meanwhile, the lowly-weighted mare Amlovi clearly relishes testing underfoot conditions and should have a positive role to play despite a 9lb rise in the weights for her recent Plumpton success. However, at the other end of the spectrum there's scope to anticipate an improved performance from the dropped-in-trip and eased-in-grade OXWICH BAY. His trainer Evan Williams boasts an exceptional 35% strike-rate here since April 2015.
