Verdict

Beaten in slow ground at Nottingham last week, QUALITY ART still carries a penalty for his earlier win at Leicester. The only recent winner on show, Richard Guest's charge can get his head back in front in this modest company. It was soft ground when Gottcher posted an improved effort at Catterick and Baker's Pursuit is preferred on her recent second at Ayr. Busy Bimbo regularly makes the frame and did so again at Newcastle last time but she's now had 37 starts without success and the rest are even harder to fancy.
