Verdict

A modest handicap that doesn't lack for entries and FLEETING FASHION could be worth chancing at the odds. Michael Appleby's filly ran as if in need of her reappearance at Leicester, but she'd shaped with promise last summer and any rain would be to her benefit. Madrasa is unpenalised for his victory in an apprentices' race at Redcar and Keith Reveley's gelding should run his race. Gosforth Park is interesting on his return from absence and Mel Brittain's seven-year-old is the only course and distance winner in the field. Bavarian Nordic ran his best race for some time at Beverley and is just 1lb above his last winning mark. Tim Walford's stable have been among the winners of late so don't dismiss a big run from Blue Top.
