Elusive Bonus won her maiden at Ripon last time but is drawn out with the washing today, while it's beginning to look like Justine Time's good effort at Newcastle last month was down to the heavy ground and she won't get that here. LOOK HERE'S LADY improved to finish second in a seller at Ripon on her latest start and, as this isn't much better, she's taken to make the most of a favourable draw. Lady Hello and Indyend may finish closer on their handicap debuts and Valley Of Hope could also figure back on fast ground.
