Les Verguettes will find this tougher than the maiden she won at Wolverhampton last month and Rightcar is upped in class after scoring over C&D on his latest start. Belinsky is hard to catch right, but Dickie Le Davoir is capable on his day and Zip Lock will have come on for last month's reappearance. However, although SHERJAWY has not been in top form racing over 5f at Lingfield of late, Zoe Davison's five time C&D winner has slipped down the weights as a result and is taken to return to winning ways back at this track.
