Plenty with a shout in this. Athaakeel has been in decent form at Wolverhampton of late and Red Ramesses had Kerfuffle behind when winning at Kempton last time. Artful Lady scored over track and trip on her latest start and has claims along with Mary's Pet and Spoof Master. SLATEY HEN scored on this card last year and, racing off a lower mark today with a recent second under her belt, she gets the speculative vote to take advantage of an apprentice's 5lb claim and return to winning ways.
