Verdict

A number arrive with claims but PLUMETTE has looked better than ever since re-joining David Loughnane, overcoming a positional bias to win readily at Wolverhampton 3 weeks ago, and she gets the nod to continue the good work back on turf. Bavardages, who scored in good style at Southwell in March, is a threat along with recent Pontefract 1-2 Al Qaasim and Dogged. Tiger Touch is also worth a close look back from a break.
