Natural Bloom took her time to get her act together but did so in heavy ground at Folkestone last time. She can figure on her handicap bow but DOCS LEGACY is the tentative selection in a open contest. The latter wasn't far away when runner-up at Redcar last Saturday and can race off the same mark here. Maybeagrey and Dorry K have both been winning over longer trips while Ingleby Angel has been in fine form over shorter distances but Tawaasul is another maiden winner open to further progress along with Only Orsenfoolsies, up 8lb for his runaway win over a mile at Beverley. Educate and Multibene are other recent winners worthy of consideration.
