Bathwick Junior made the most of her slide down the weights to score at Plumpton earlier this month. She should be thereabouts again but QUAPRILAND may prove too good. The latter won a chase at Folkestone last week on her first start for over a year and is potentially well handicapped back over timber. Chilworth Screamer finished third at Towcester earlier this month but testing ground is a worry for her and Uimhir A Seacht could prove a bigger threat having posted a better effort at Exeter last time.
