Verdict

It's questionable as to whether Leenavesta is improving as she was easily brushed aside at Brighton eight days ago and it will be a surprise if there isn't something in this with more scope. Ocean Myth bounced back to form when fourth at Thirsk last time after a modest effort over further at Nottingham and looks sure to play a part, but she may just find the concession of 5lb to DRESSED IN LACE beyond her. Andrew Balding's filly didn't really handle the bends at Chester last time but looks to have solid claims here on her earlier second to Pink Sapphire at Salisbury.
