MAYBEME won this last year and showed her wellbeing with a battling success over Reset City at Ripon last week. She's been saddled with a 6lb penalty but Neville Bycroft puts Eva Moscrop up claiming 7lb and the combination look good enough. The runner-up has now had 18 starts without winning but Valantino Oyster was gaining her seventh success on that same card at Ripon and is still well handicapped despite a penalty. Rockweiller started favourite here on Saturday but found a mile too short and though Standpoint has been running moderately he's dropped to a very winnable mark as a consequence having completed a hat-trick from higher marks than this last summer.
