Verdict

A winner in France, Magic Art showed her best form in this country so far when fifth at Chester. But she has a few lengths to find with WILHANA on earlier form at that track. The latter made all there last month but couldn't hold off better opposition on her latest start. Back in this lower grade, she's fancied to get the better of Pontefract runner-up Vicky Valentine and return to winning ways. Elizabeth Coffee steps up in class for this while A Star In My Eye remains badly out of form.
