In what looks a tightly-knit affair, PINK MARTINI(best price 4/1) has a fair chance of proving her price is all wrong and, at the same time, preserving her unbeaten record at today’s track. Joseph Tuite’s inmate opened her account at the Surrey venue with an impressive victory over the C&D back in January and although she was beaten on her next start at Kempton, she proved last time out that it’s the undulating and sharp nature of this course that suits her best. Although she can make the running, the daughter of Tagula proved that she has another string to her bow when coming from off the pace to score tidily here last time and it would come as no surprise if she were to punch above her weight in this much tougher test.

HOT STUFF(best price 11/4) has clocked two smart times in defeat over today’s C&D recently and a repeat of those figures should give Tony Carroll’s charge every chance of finally getting off the mark. Unlucky two starts back when he was short of room in the closing stages of a well-run handicap won by Jess, the son of Assertive just found the progressive Justice Lady too hot to handle back in maiden company here last time. Although Powerful Dream is respected following her breakthrough all-weather win last time, she’s doesn’t have the experience of running round this track and that just might tip the balance in the favour of the selection in the final count.
