Verdict

LITTLE GLENSHEE gained her first victory on this track by 27l and won by a distance at Kelso last time. She finished runner-up in a Haydock Listed contest in-between and though having to concede lumps of weight should be good enough again. Lady Of Verona has been well beaten despite her promising form figures so Mary Milan looks the logical danger. She showed nothing on her debut but ran well behind Detour Ahead at Wetherby in December and there should be more to come.
