Enhanced excellent record at Ayr when landing 20f heavy-ground handicap in December. Back from a break but still merits consideration once more despite 5 lb rise.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

None of the septet can be safely ruled out but RUNASIMI RIVER scored four times last season and looks primed for a bold showing after an encouraging second at Doncaster. Fontaine Collonges rates a big threat stepping up in trip on her handicap bow and the progressive Sexy Lot is another well worth a second look.

Betting Forecast

9/1 Midnightreflection, 7/1 Baby Ticker, 6/1 Runasimi River, 20/1 Schiaparannie, 7/2 Sexy Lot (Ger), 22/1 Desaray Girl (Fr)
