KERRYS REQUIEM, Damika and Medici Time make the shortlist here, with Kerrys Requiem taken to supplement a recent success in a tight handicap. Damika is chasing a hat-trick and comes here on the back of a nice win over the course and distance last time. She is racing over her optimum trip though a 5lb rise in her rating leaves her saddling top weight and that may be prohibitive. Medici Time won over this trip last autumn, and was an emphatic scorer in a Leicester handicap over the minimum trip last time. 9lbs higher for that win, Medici Time looks sure nonetheless to be likely to go well. Kerrys Requiem landed only her second success in 29 starts last time, when the fitting of a visor seemed to do the trick. The win was clear cut, and she had been running consistently in good contests previously. Now that she has found the winning secret, Kerrys Requiem may be capable of following up.
