Verdict

As mares' handicaps go, this looks quite competitive though Scotsbrook Legend might struggle to get involved carrying more than her allotted weight and Lindsay's Dream has lost her way lately. White Diamond likes this sharp track but has been raised 6lb since losing out narrowly over C&D last month and A Little Swifter may need a stiffer test of stamina but Huntingdon winner Belle De Fontenay can't be ignored and Scholastica ran very well in a Listed contest at Haydock after winning by 20 lengths at Uttoxeter. CHICKLEMIX was tried over fences here in October but didn't take to the larger obstacles. She's been quick to find her feet again over timber and can follow up her recent Wetherby win off a 5lb higher mark.
