MARLISMAMMA got off the mark on her handicap debut at Ayr a week ago. She carries a penalty but is taken to go in again given she's less exposed than most of these including Dancing Sal. The latter went close at Wolverhampton last week while Secret Applause was beaten only a nose in a seller at Musselburgh last time and this isn't much better. Sartori has bits of form that give him a chance and Another Royal may figure dropping down a grade.
