Verdict

WHERE'S SUSIE arrives in form, remains well treated and likes it here so really selects herself in a weak affair; with Vita Mia opposable the biggest threat may emerge from Party Palace. Our selection took second to a progressive type over two miles last time and will be suited by returning to turf. Her last success came off a mark of 62 so this rating of 61 offers hope and she's form on undulating tracks, including a win over further here. In a race where plenty have questions to answer, her chance is clear and it'd be a surprise were she not at least close come the finish. Vita Mia isn't badly treated on her best efforts and this is very much her trip, but she had been off for 272 days prior to disappointing at Brighton on Tuesday and it's a big ask to expect her to race again so soon after, so Party Palace can take home second prize. She's clearly only modest but remains on the same mark that saw her take second to a subsequent winner last time, although it must be said she does seem to run particularly well at Chepstow and needs to translate that form to this different track. Location has only won on the all-weather so far but, for one who has had almost 30 starts, she does remain unexposed over middle distances and Hayley Turner's booking catches the eye. Miss Doodle isn't impossibly treated on the pick of her maiden form and hasn't had much racing but we'd want to see more before siding with her and inside we'll take Where's Susie.
