It was only a seller that FIVE HEARTS finished third in at Wolverhampton last week but this is an even lower grade affair and a repeat effort may be good enough to come out best. Byrd In Hand showed a bit more over a mile here last time and could figure while Dolly Colman went close at Lingfield on her penultimate start and has a shout. Brave Decision landed a gamble at Wolverhampton last month though has been well beaten since but Lytham has the past form to figure.
