Verdict

Dancing Sal finished along way behind HESKIN over track and trip a fortnight ago. The latter would have won by more than a short-head with a clear run and Richard Fahey's filly gets the nod to follow-up on her handicap bow. Atheera also won a maiden on her latest start at Carlisle but Know Your Name's victory at Nottingham last month looks stronger form and he had little chance in the Chesham at Ascot last time. Party Ruler has been placed over 6f at this track and looks best of the remainder on that form.
