Verdict

Most of these struggle to get their head in front, though Kapdor did win a Worcester seller in August and was third at Newton Abbot subsequently. FLAME OF DIXIE remains a maiden and was well beaten on her return at Bangor but she has hinted at ability and, lightly-raced, wouldn't need to find much to land what looks a very modest heat. The returning Umoristic must have some sort of chance while Ajman did win here as a three-year-old and McCoy's presence in the saddle suggests Hughie Morrison's mare Stravita is fit enough to try and score for the first time outside selling company. Aureate may be best of the rest but often flatters to deceive.
