Verdict

Button Down chased home Hidden Gold at Salisbury in May and gave vain pursuit to Allegria at Doncaster last month. That pair finished first and third in a decent handicap at Doncaster on Friday and Lady Cecil's filly should run well here and is preferred to Chepstow scorer Mabdhool. But she might struggle to give 8lb to the less-exposed WESTERLY, who did well to overturn the odds-on Smiling Stranger at Pontefract on just her second start and is clearly improving at a rate of knots. Miss Tree also runs her first handicap but doesn't look particularly well treated and Bajan Beauty took six attempts to get off the mark, though was quite highly tried last year.
