Despite a rise in her rating after last time out success MISTRESS TO NO ONE still looks well treated and has the vote with Widely Accepted looking a nice value price for a place while we also expect Pterodactyl to run a good race. After disappointing for a couple of years the selection took advantage of a lowly mark to score on debut for her current yard last time out. That victory of 13 length was impressive enough but with her only up nine pounds for that and the contest providing a winner this looks another decent opportunity. Widely Accepted has a good chance at landing each-way punters a decent return with bits and pieces of form in the locker. The most significant of which was a runners-up place in testing ground at Newbury and although that was a while ago now it was off a mark one pound heavier than he carries here. Pterodactyl has been running well with limited success so far but is entitled to improve and get even closer again although the ground is a bit of an unknown. Bugsy's Boy, Nur Tau and Blue Teal have enough on paper to also be involved in the prize money but ahead of them all should be Mistress To No One
