Dante's Frolic hasn't had much racing since landing a Catterick maiden a year ago and was held when falling at Musselburgh last time. BE MY PRESENT hasn't replicated her good bumper form over timber but she's been racing on ground too soft and should be ready for this after a couple of recent runs. She is handed the vote as though Pixie Cut has been going well on testing going she was receiving 21lb when narrowly beaten by Titus Bolt at Ayr. Ellistrin Belle did a bit better on her handicap debut at Musselburgh where she ran out of steam over that 2m4f trip.
