Verdict

Dotesy's second at Ripon is the best single piece of form on offer but that came over 5f and she's since disappointed over today's trip. SHERRY FOR NANNY makes more appeal on her latest effort at Ripon when not beaten far in fourth. Majorie Fife's filly gets the nod ahead of Lady Captain, who posted a better effort at Beverley last time and Blades Boy, who has shown only modest form so far. It doesn't bode well that Cascadia makes her racecourse debut at this level though she won't have to be anything special to figure.
