A master at getting his horses well handicapped Sir Mark Prescott got a decent mark for ARTY CRAFTY, who duly won her handicap debut and we suggest she still might be ahead of the assessor here and is taken to land this in front of last time out winner Oddsmaker while Naomh Genesis now looks well weighted. The step up to this sort of trip did the trick for the selection, who just got up late home last time. The manner of the victory suggested she still might be light in the weights with a five pound mark rise and we wouldn't be surprised to see her rack up a sequence. Oddsmaker stayed on really well to land his second win in three starts last time and this slightly sharper test could help him manage his six pounds penalty. Naomh Genesis may be seen in a better light now dropping in class plus his career low mark may also get more from him and Hawkit is a consistent competitor, who found just one too good in a poor race off this mark last time. Not the best race on the card but we intimate that Arty Craft is still well treated
