Verdict

The step up in trip can see MNASIKIA break her maiden tag on ground that should suit. Luca Cumani's Rahy filly has not been seen since disappointing on the Polytrack in February and she races from a very moderate mark. It is hard to believe that her trainer won't have her primed and ready to take advantage. Just The Tonic comes here in fine form after wins at both Redcar and Catterick in recent times. A 6lb rise for the latest of those will make this tough. Opening Nite is dropped in trip this time after failing to stay last time and should be able to show more now handicapping, but Mnasikia is taken to score.
