Verdict

A fairly ordinary handicap in which more than half the intended runners are making their return following a break. It's further complicated by the fact that Bernard Llewellyn runs two. ILLYSANTACHRISTINA has arguably been taking on better company than stablemate Bazart. She still held every chance turning for home over 2m4f at Ffos Las last time which suggests this drop in distance will be in her favour. The top weight gets the vote with doubts surrounding most of her rivals. Todareistodo is lightly raced but his future probably lies over fences and Lady Bridget may need some help from the handicapper if she's going to get her head back in front.
