Verdict

Bertha Burnett is racing from out of the handicap and while Strictly Glitz was only beaten a neck at Beverley last month, she's 2lb higher here and her stable is going through a quiet spell at the moment. Soft ground has to be a concern for Eddiemaurice, who is also high enough in the weights now, But Arrowzone won on good to soft at Redcar in April and has been dropped a pound since his latest third at Carlisle. SHERIFF OF NAWTON hasn't raced since failing to land a hat-trick at Redcar in May but has winning form on soft going and can make a successful return for an in-form stable.
