There's always the chance of false pace in these small fields but BOUNTIFUL GIRL comes out best on today's terms. The Carlisle winner went close again at Beverley last Wednesday and connections will be hoping Manomine takes up the running as he's done on previous occasions. The latter has a bit to find at the weights along with Darling Lexi and Belusca looks a bigger danger. She has yet to try today's longer trip but finished third over a mile at this track behind Our Boy Jack, who runs earlier on the card, on her penultimate start.
