Harvest Mist gained her first success at Wolverhampton last month but couldn't quite cope with a 4lb rise on her subsequent start over this track and trip. She'll need to do better while Athletic appears to find this trip on the short side these days. Liam Keniry rode a fine race to get the often-reluctant GREEK ISLANDS home here last week and though his mount is hardly the most reliable of types, now that he's finally got his head in front he's very well handicapped and taken to complete a quick double under a penalty. Signora Frasi hasn't been in the best of form but she's taken a big drop in the weights and if the market speaks in her favour she'll be one to watch. Mataajir could do best of the remainder.
