Burnt Cream appears to hold few secrets from the handicapper but the Yarmouth winner is running at the peak of her powers at present, and it would be no surprise to see Martin Bosley's mare give another fair account. Narborough continues to knock on the door but his lack of victories is enough to make us look elsewhere so we offer a chance to IGNIGHT. Mark Usher's colt had shown little prior to his second at Ffos Las, and with the trainer booking a top lightweight jockey today, he can go one better off the same handicap mark. Spider Lily landed a modest handicap at Brighton last week, and while no certainty to defy a penalty, the assessor seems sure to hit her with a further weight rise in the future. Red Cobra was tried unsuccessfully under forcing tactics at Haydock but Tim Easterby's gelding is starting to look exceptionally well treated these days.
