FLAWLESSLY proved good enough to cope with the effects of a high draw when winning here last time, carrying a light weight in a much better race. She may do so again from the opposite end of the handicap scale. Her rider's 10lb claim could prove crucial in a race in which two other last-time-out course winners Chicago School and Free To Roam head the list of likely dangers. [Alan Sweetman]

Reliable competitor at this venue, reaching the money on last three visits; third behind Chicago School and Bluesbreaker on penultimate start; rider's claim helped to overcome disadvantage of being 4lb out of the handicap here last time, and she now has a 10lb claimer up to reduce her big burden.

Three wins at this venue including off 67 a year ago; dropping down the handicap but needs to improve on recent efforts which leave him something to find with rivals such as Flawlessly and Chicago School.
