Verdict

ROXY FLYER left a very good impression when staying on well to win at Goodwood over 1m 3f and with plenty of stamina in her pedigree this searching 12f can help her to successfully defy an 8lb rise in the weights. The handicapper did not miss the Windsor maiden win by Blissful Moment, alloting him a mark of 86 for this handicap debut. The step up in trip also looks positive for him and he is much respected. Eton Fable is exposed but has been given a chance from today's mark, while La Vecchia Scuola can make a bold bid under topweight, but Roxy Flyer is the one for us.
