Yenhaab has come up short at this level on a couple of occasions now, including at Doncaster last time. Fire Fighting steps up in class on the back of placed efforts and Truancy has been raised a further 6lb after a hat-trick of wins in lesser company. SCALLOP is the least exposed having won her handicap debut at Nottingham earlier this month. The Stoute yard has an outstanding strike rate at the track and she gets the nod to go in again with Braidley another to consider on last month's fourth at Goodwood.
