Verdict

SIOUX RISING strikes as a bit of a course specialist and she can take top honours again. Lee Topliss' valuable 5lb claim will help this Danetime filly who was well-held behind Tajneed at Ripon last month; she is two from two here and is expected to bounce back to form. Esuvia is having a great year and the handicapper continues to be lenient, whilst Ardent could be anything after a Doncaster maiden romp and given she was backed on debut at Thirsk (when disappointing) her mark of 82 could be too low. Poppet's Lovein's recent form probably has more substance to it than Who's Shirl, Pepper Lane or Russian Rave, but bigger threats may be the classy pair at the head of the weights. Both Gouray Girl and Rio Mist come here in good form and neither's handicap mark looks completely out of reach.
