Verdict

Bethan is still a maiden after a dozen starts and doesn't appear to be getting any nearer to winning. ATALANTA BAY is just about up to this class and, though 3lb higher than for her latest success, this should be within her capabilities. Elegant Ophelia went up 6lb for completing a Lingfield double then couldn't cope over this track and trip and has gone up another 1lb. Poitin's last success came over 2m on this track and she's much better over that sort of trip.
