Verdict

MAXINE had shown promise on the all-weather earlier this year before returning to Turf with a very easy victory on soft ground at Bath a week ago. She's been hit with a massive 12lb rise so coming here with a 6lb penalty looks the logical step. Myristica is also penalised for her recent victory at Nottingham where she was well supported and looked very much improved. She looks a real threat with the ground in her favour. Double Reflection has managed to win five races though is better on quicker ground while Walkonby lost her action at Redcar and is best watched for now. Valley Of Flowers was engaged in the 2.30 at Ripon yesterday so that result should be monitored.
