Verdict

It's hard to get past ALUMINA in this. Chasing a five timer, her previous wins have included a couple of victories over 6f on the Fibresand and Jack Garritty's allowance negates a penalty for her latest success. Black Vale is only 3lb higher than December's win over track and trip and should make a race of it having scored at Lingfield last time. Glace won a maiden at the same track before attempting to make all on her handicap debut but is still preferred to Evacusafe Lady, who appears to be struggling off her current mark.
