STRAWBERRYANDCREAM (3.20) upset a couple of fancied three-year-olds when delivering a withering late run to score at Catterick last month and the extra furlong should be right up her street at Pontefract.
James Bethell's four-year-old can take the measure of likely favourite Be Bold, unlucky at Hamilton last time when denied a clear run. Be Bold had earlier edged out Forever A Lady at Musselburgh and sets a reasonable standard.
In the second division of the mile handicap it may pay to give QUOTELINE DIRECT (3.50 another chance. He usually goes well at Pontefract, Micky Hammond saddled a winner at Carlisle on Monday evening and the handicapper has dropped Quoteline Direct a further 2lb. It all adds up to a big run.
STREAKER (2.50) chased home useful sort in Macho Time at Ayr, with the winner defying a penalty three weeks later at Redcar. Kevin Ryan is another trainer in form and Streaker could well improve past favourite Three Fans, a promising fourth to the Ryan-trained Treble Treble at Haydock.
TRELINNEY (3.10) should have the race run to suit at Bath. Marcus Tregoning's filly scored with a bit in hand at Chepstow and runner-up Bug Boy has won since at Ffos Las. Course and distance winner Perfect Grace and Princess Way both like to dictate so Trelinney should be able to sit off a strong gallop. Ramatuelle has ten lengths to make up on Perfect Grace on their previous Bath form but Sir Mark Prescott's team are in better nick now.
