Verdict

Celestial Girl is only a couple of pounds higher than when scoring at Brighton but she's done all of her racing at a lower level so far. Licence To Till has been knocking on the door and is unlikely to be far away again, however, and appears to have the beating of Ramona Chase on their run together at Sandown nine days ago. The latter had also finished behind Silver Grey at the same track earlier and Roger Ingram's filly can be forgiven a subsequent run in Listed company at Salisbury. Don't Call Me is vulnerable over the distance so this is probably best left to the much-improved TENBY LADY, who won with plenty in hand when completing her hat-trick at Sandown and can defy a further 6lb weight rise.
