Verdict

Links Drive Lady finally got off the mark at the 19th time of asking when successful at Leicester last time. She doesn't look the type to follow-up with that strike rate while a 4lb rise may prevent My Own Way Home going in again given she'd been beaten off lower marks before scoring at Lingfield last week. AMAZON TWILIGHT missed most of last year so should have scope for improvement and, after a better effort at Newmarket recently, she could be up to landing this lower grade contest. Judas Jo continues to slide down the weights and finished a bit closer over C&D last time.
