Verdict

SHOW FLOWER is worth sticking with until beaten. She wasn't unduly troubled at Bath when recording her fourth straight win and is taken to defy the handicapper once again. Rafeej went close at Newmarket only to disappoint when favourite at Pontefract last time when Springinmystep was runner-up to All Or Nothin. The latter has been beaten in better company since but can figure in this and Tip Top Gorgeous found one too good again at Haydock last time despite today's apprentice taking 7lb off her back.
