Valley Queen recorded a narrow margin victory in soft ground at Windsor last time though she did have handicap debutant Ever Fortune over four lengths behind in third. She should confirm running in this but ISHIAMIRACLE will be tougher to beat. The latter got her head back in front in heavy ground at this track a week ago and the three length winner can defy a penalty and go in again. The New Black could only manage fifth in a division of the same handicap at this track last time with Glan Lady well beaten and Wolverhampton winner Balti's Sister makes more appeal.
