Billy Blade is still 6lb higher than when winning a novices' handicap at Worcester last summer but Adam Wedge takes 3lb off and he acts on soft ground. He has finished tailed off in his last two starts but this is a very weak affair. FEISTY LASS won a point-to-point over 3m last year and has been lightly raced under Rules. She was a fair third over 2m4f at Chepstow earlier this month and a repeat of that effort would probably suffice here. Hero's Call ran her best race so far when third at Plumpton last month and is the only one of the others to have shown any worthwhile recent form.
