Race Verdict

SHE RANKS ME has struggled to get her head in front over timber but appeared to improve for the switch to this yard when stepped back in trip at Bangor last time. Noted as putting in her best work in the closing stages that day, this longer trip is expected to continue her improvement. Miss Tilly Oscar advertised her wellbeing when second at Stratford last time and heads the list of possible dangers from the dropped-in-trip Glenora Gale.

Selection: She Ranks Me        Danger: Miss Tilly Oscar        Alternative: Glenora Gale
