Verdict

Alan Berry's horses are running well at present and SCRIPT can spring a surprise in the finale. The filly didn't stay 6f at Ayr last week but she has a plum draw on this occasion and she can make her presence felt. Majestic Manannan could give her an early battle for the lead. Dandy Nicholls' four-year-old made all at Yarmouth and was well supported ahead of a follow-up bid at Nottingham. Sir Geoffrey has never won at Pontefract though he's seldom far away in races of this nature. El Mcglynn appreciates a bit of give underfoot and Eric Alston's filly returns from an absence some 5lb lower in the weights than when she left. Beauty Pageant has rejoined David Brown and having been the subject of a gamble last time out, a market watch is advised.
