Jackie Love won a similar event over track and trip last month, but never figured back at this track last time when earlier victim, Blueberry Fizz, reversed running. The latter continues to run well without winning and the less exposed EVENING PINOT makes more appeal. She'll need to improve on her form to date, but has plenty of scope and could make her first start in a handicap a winning one. Welsh Dancer and Royal Envoy could prove best of the rest on the pick of their form.
