Oh So Sassy ran well on her handicap debut at Yarmouth and attempts the minimum trip for the first time here. Hand In Glove has struggled since landing a maiden race at Wolverhampton but Welsh Moonlight has claims back down in grade after an outing in Class 4 company. GOLDEN SECRET has improved with every run and finished runner-up at Leicester on her latest start. It's not difficult to see Clive Cox's filly finding that bit extra on her handicap bow and she gets the vote to open her account.
