SANDBECK won over the minimum trip at Nottingham on her reappearance and handicap debut. A novice winner over today’s longer trip, Ed Bethell’s filly can go in again having had a subsequent winner back in third last time. Mid Winster is another returning to 6f after a fourth at Beverley while True Jem returns to the Turf after finishing third at Wolverhampton. Improvised drops down in class 6lb higher than her latest success.
