Verdict

TRUE PLEASURE can win again before the handicapper has his say. She's won twice here recently and also score at Ayr last month. Raised only 3lb since her latest course and distance victory, James Bethell's mare is still getting 8lb from Absent Amy who came up short in her hat-trick bid at Yarmouth after a couple of wins on the Polytrack. Slim Chance and My New Angel are both struggling to get their heads in front while First Class Favour appears to have lost the plot and is best watched until showing signs of a revival. Indian Giver was well behind the selection on her belated reappearance, but should improve for the run.
