CLEAN BOW has a penalty for last week's victory at Nottingham but she scored by nearly four lengths and an apprentice takes 5lb off her back today. David Brown's filly is taken to confirm running with Lucky Lodge and follow-up. Bondi Beach Boy only does just enough but this looks tougher than his recent win over track and trip and he'll need more to land the hat-trick. Sunrise Dance drops down a grade and is no forlorn hope while Quaroma finally showed some improvement for her tumble down the weights when fourth at Musselburgh recently and she can figure.
