ATTAINABLE has an intriguing profile and Amanda Perrett's runner is preferred to Key Regard, Ebony Eyes and Bow To No One. A Kalanisi filly, the selection was well-fancied on her reappearance run this season at the track. She ran below expectations there but she wasn't given a hard time when defeat was inevitable and she should have learnt plenty from the run. A mark of 70 looks fair enough for this first foray into handicap company and she is narrowly preferred. Ramora and Demeanour have both run with credit this season but the lack of wins must be a concern (as must Ramora's latest run), whilst recent scorer Bow To No One has an 8lb loftier perch following a Pontefract win last time out. Sea Lavender was well-fancied at Windsor earlier this month but she was very poor and the blinkers are now tried, Rawaaj is unexposed and is bred to appreciate this sort of trip as he makes his handicap debut, whilst Kieren Fallon looks an interesting jockey booking for the consistent Everaard. Course form is often an advantage here and so Ebony Eyes must be high on any shortlist despite his rising handicap mark, however it is Attainable who is fancied to break her maiden tag.
