Yajamila won on the Fibresand earlier this month but looks harshly treated on her handicap debut. Milly's Secret had Street Boss behind at Catterick last month and rarely runs a bad race but may struggle to confirm earlier Pontefract running with KHALICE. Richard Fahey's youngster met trouble in-running on that occasion and is much better off at the weights today. She got off the mark over track and trip earlier this month and a double looks on the cards with New Bidder having more to do than when winning at Pontefract, though he is still improving. We'll Shake Hands won on debut at Haydock but that didn't look a strong maiden and the more experienced Bounty Hunter and Soul Instinct make more appeal.
