Verdict

David Nicholls has saddled three of the last six winners of this claimer but he will be hard pressed to do so today with Jibrrya, and preference is for AVONVALLEY. George Baker's filly has seen plenty of action this season and comes here in consistently decent form. She landed a Lingfield seller two starts ago before going well in defeat in a course and distance handicap here last time. She goes on good to soft and can take advantage of the switch to this sphere. Galpin Junior looks a danger and won a claimer here over this trip in the summer, while it would be no surprise to see dual 5f winner Atlantic Beach get heavily involved, although his best efforts have been on a sound or fast surface.
