Verdict

This looks trappy with MEGALEKA a very tentative recommendation but she's strong claims if repeating the level of her penultimate run when a half-length second to Lexington Place over this trip at Redcar. Made favourite next time, she trailed home last of 10 and remains an inconsistent performer as indicated by her overall profile. Slatey Hen has yet to win on turf but is respected along with Johnny Splash, a close second here last time to The Strig. Excellent Aim hunted up Renoir's Lady here last time on his first run for five months and rates a danger to all if progressing from that effort. The Name Is Frank and Burnt Cream are also noted, especially the latter if able to get off on level terms from the gate where she has regularly spoilt her chance in the past.
