SHESELLS SEASHELLS has scope for improvement and in a wide open handicap her course form makes plenty of appeal. Michael Bell's filly won her maiden here and after showing improved form when returned to this track for her second handicap start last time she can improve again from 1lb better off. Mellifera is on a progressive run of form and her near miss off this rating last time out gives her a clear chance while Plutocraft is still a maiden after eight starts but her run behind a well tipped up runner last time puts her in the frame. Loads in with chances here but Shesells Seashells has the most scope for improvement.
