Verdict

The softer the ground the better for Maarek but he didn't shown much on his first start for new handler Barry Lalor and is undoubtedly better over an extra furlong. STEPS is in fine form and was only beaten a nose by Angels Will Fall in last week's Portland Handicap. He is 2lb better off here and can turn the tables and take this step up in grade in his stride though Stepper Point and York Glory are both viable alternatives. Only a neck separated the pair in the Beverley Bullet with the latter meeting trouble in-running and finishing strongly. Kingsgate Native and Tickled Pink have both been taking on top-class sprinters but the former is quirky and carries a penalty while the latter also needs things to go her way. They both finished ahead of York Glory and Caledonia Lady at York last month however. Miss Lahar won a Listed race at Naas in July but this is more competitive.
