Motrice comes here on the back of winning at Yarmouth over this trip and High Ransom can't be ruled out as she runs in handicap company for the first time plus she has a step-up in trip but we tentatively side with BLINKA ME who can pick up a win after a very close second last time out. The selection was just half a length behind the victor at Nottingham previously and for a first try at today's trip that was a decent effort. With a bit of improvement she could be the one to be on in this race. There is a major danger from Motrice who performed very well to win by over four lengths after running very strongly in the latter stages in a contest over this distance at Yarmouth in his latest start. The Sir Mark Prescott trained filly has made steady progress since debut last year and has developed particularly well so far this year. She should be challenging towards the finish and so should High Ransom if making a decent go of a first handicap run. Pena Dorada is also worth noting after finishing third behind our pick and the winner at Nottingham in his most recent start. We give a tentative nod to Blinka Me to win.
