Avonvalley finally took advantage of her slide down the weights when scoring over 5f at Wolverhampton last week. She should go well again despite a penalty, but a chance is taken on MILTON OF CAMPSIE. She too has slipped down the handicap as a result of a long losing run, but a better effort over 7f here last time suggests Richard Guest's mare is ready to cash in. Pharoah Jake has the beating of Cara Carmela on latest running and Suhayl Star finished ahead of both Jemimaville and Wee Buns at this track recently.
