Tilstarr has solid claims on her latest second at Kempton and should make another bold bid but a chance is taken on GIVE ME HIGH FIVE. The latter's stamina looks to have been stretched to the limit in three starts over a mile at this track and she drops back in distance for her handicap debut. Bay Laurel scored at Wolverhampton but failed to figure off today's mark on her handicap bow while Derwentwater and Man In The Arena are closely matched on latest running but both need to improve if they're to figure in this.
