15:40 Thursday

It’s somewhat of a surprise to see SLY MADAM away from Brighton on Thursday but perhaps connections want to strike while the iron is hot. There is no doubt she ran a cracker when denied just a head by Girl Inthe Picture last time. She was only headed late and gets to run off the same mark here. Despite being kept busy this season I still feel she might have more to offer and given how winnable this looks 9/2 makes plenty of appeal. William Carver claims a handy 3lb off her back and with conditions ideal she must go close. The fact Atlantic Heart is second favourite and she remains a maiden says a lot about the lack of quality on show here. Her nose defeat on penultimate start would make her the main danger but she spurned another good opportunity last time. At a bigger price Bounty Pursuit has at least won at this track and might go well but needs to bounce back.
