Verdict

Sieglinde was put up 6lb after winning at Ffos Las but must have every chance of following up dropped into a seller for the first time. Speedy Directa certainly has the past form to figure and is starting to slip down the handicap, while there may yet be another race in veteran Killing Me Softly judged on his latest third on heavy ground at Exeter. DRUMMERS DRUMMING is still a maiden but has been knocking on the door lately and, though creeping up the weights again, could finally get off the mark in this under excellent 3lb claimer Lee Edwards.
