Verdict

Kraka Gym won at Wolverhampton in February but could only manage fifth back at the same track last time when both Uplifted and Suni Dancer finished ahead of Mick Easterby's charge. Uplifted may well come out best of that trio again while Lynngale has made the frame at Southwell recently and could get involved on her handicap debut. Friendless in the betting in three starts on the Polytrack this year, HER RED DEVIL was placed on a couple of occasions without threatening the winner. But improvement is expected now handicapping for the first time on her Turf debut and Richard Fahey's filly is fancied to make a bold bid.
