Darling Grace scored at Yarmouth a fortnight ago and should go well again. She has the beating of Divine Pamina who finished third in a division of the same handicap at Yarmouth. Autumn Fire won her maiden at Chepstow but ran flat on her latest start at Salisbury while Conducting has been placed on his last couple of starts and should figure if back to his best. FOOT TAPPER went close over 7f on the Polytrack at Lingfield when last seen at the track in May. He won't need to have improved much in the meantime to come out best here and gets the nod.
