Slenningford has had to drop into plating class to make her mark and though this isn't much better she was well beaten on her only start over the trip. Pelican Rock's best form as been at Southwell and Cathcart Castle has never won on Turf in 23 starts. Eastlands Lad's only decent run came on Polytrack and he's been well beaten on testing ground so this can go to DORA'S SISTER. She's no world-beater but didn't get the run of the race in a Musselburgh handicap last time and her overall form looks comfortably good enough for this.
