Verdict

RAPUNZAL has been raised the statutory 6lb for winning at Lingfield. But she scored with plenty in hand and has more scope than Baltic Fire. The latter is still searching for his first win having made the frame at Thirsk last time while Clapperboard faces a tougher task after landing a seller over 7f here on her latest start. Heartstrings is getting no closer despite slipping down the handicap so the less-exposed Patronella makes more appeal.
