MAIN SPRING travels a long way for this handicap debut and she can make it worth the while by seeing off Shayla and Refuse To Wait. Michael Bell's filly shaped with more promise at Kempton last month and she enters handicaps on a mark of 67. The longer trip is sure to be in her favour and if she handles this quick ground (some doubts on pedigree) then she should run well. Shayla is unexposed and is open to more improvement now handicapping and any market support would be of interest, Anaya should appreciate the stiffer test of stamina today, whilst Wedding Dream was in patchy form when last seen at Southwell and has since been given a break. Refuse To Wait looks handicapped to win races and this filly comes here in better form after a solid third to Hathaway last time out, Princess Emma needs a market check as she is bred to improve this year, whilst Dazakhee won't mind the step back up in distance and is a major player especially if the market agrees. An open handicap then but marginal preference is for top-weight Main Spring.
