Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

Stepping back up in trip could be just the tonic for BALANCING ACT, who was a close third off this mark at Beverley last time and gets the nod ahead of the mildly progressive Lady Celia. The race may have come to soon for Eye Smiling when thwarted in her hat-trick bid at Chepstow and she should also have a part to play, while handicap-debutante Feisty Gal is one to note in the betting.

Betting Forecast

4/1 Eye Smiling (Ire), 9/2 Balancing Act (Ire), 11/2 Inevitable Outcome (Ire), 17/2 Serenading, 12/1 Knightcap, 9/2 Lady Celia, 28/1 Red Treble, 14/1 Feisty Gal (Ire)
