Given none of the opposition stand out as being well handicapped, the vote goes REGAL SALUTE on her handicap debut. She finished a decent third in a maiden over C&D last time and should find enough improvement to take care of these. Sergeant Troy has raced in better company since winning at Warwick and could figure, though excuses look thin on the ground for C&D winner Royal Reverie's recent poor efforts. Miss Bootylishes ended a long losing run at Chepstow last time and is straight back up in the weights, while Crazy Chris has the past form to figure but was tailed off on her reappearance.
