Fazza enters the fray in winning form having won nicely at Pontefract and, with Kevin Stott again claiming 7lb, a 6lb rise should hold no terrors. However, he's never won at this trip unlike Paris Rose, who scored easily over this course and distance from today's rival Dance King before following up at Newmarket. She hasn't done as well in subsequent starts, however, though Dance King has gone on to land a Brighton maiden. In a wide-open handicap where nothing can be ruled out, PRESBURG is handed the verdict as he ran the race of his life when just failing to catch Pasaka Boy at Newbury and his in-form rider's claim is a major bonus.
