GLEN MOLLY is the form pick to land this handicap at the expense of Maxwell Hawke and Suruor. The selection ran second on her debut at Newbury and improved from that to win as a favourite ought to at the same venue thereafter. She was well supported that day and looks well treated on her handicap debut today so with that in mind she id difficult to oppose. Maxwell Hawke broke his maiden tag over course and distance last time out and is another that has his first run in a handicap. He again could be well treated so any market moves should be noted. Suruor has more experience than the horses mentioned and broke his maiden tag at Ayr last July. He ran well enough when second on his seasonal reappearance at Wolverhamton so is another to note in the betting market. However for the winner we return to Glen Molly.
