Shaleek gives the impression that she could outclass this field if producing her best but she's already been beaten twice at odds-on and is unlikely to represent any value dropping back to 6f. Night Trade and SPARKING were second and fourth in a Bath sprint five days ago and re-oppose on the same terms. The latter was switched at a vital stage that day and could reverse placings at a value price. Roger Charlton's lightly-raced Oasis Dream filly, Selfara, is unexposed and could be open to plenty of improvement whilst Full Shilling is in good form at present with two wins and a second from the last three outings. Another good run is expected from the Spearing inmate.
