It's difficult to be confident about any of these and GOODWOOD TREASURE only gets a token vote. She scored over track and trip in a lower grade last month but will need to improve again to follow up off a 3lb higher mark. Ffos Las winner Ice Nelly has failed to figure in a couple of starts since and her stablemate Silent Ninja makes her handicap debut, while Nicola's Dream remains a maiden. Conducting makes more appeal then the latter on his recent third at Wolverhampton and Harry Lime should be thereabouts.
