FOXTROT LADY (3.35 Pontefract, NAP) was sent off a heavily backed favourite for the Stewards’ Cup at Goodwood two weeks ago.

She ran well there and looks more than capable of landing this Listed contest.

The trip is ideal and Andrew Balding is getting the best out of this improving filly.

COMPLETION (4.05 Pontefract, NB) has run some nice races this season and is having his sights lowered after a solid effort at Goodwood last time.

Trainer William Haggas is being patient with him and this drop back in distance to a mile looks a wise move.

He should go close.

TREBLE 2.20 Southwell – Maria’s Benefit: ‘She could still be ahead of the handicapper’ (bet here)

MARTHA’S BENEFIT (2.20 Southwell, treble) has really improved since joining trainer Mark Walford and Richard Johnson keeps the rider after her convincing win at Cartmel last time.

A more conventional track suits too as she showed when scoring at Uttoxeter earlier. She could still be ahead of the handicapper.
