LIBBY AMI is penalised for scoring over 7f at Newcastle on her handicap debut but he wasn’t stopping at the finish and there should be more to come over this longer trip in a weak contest. Coupe De Champagne finished closer at Kempton without looking like winning on her handicap bow but Ambarella and Aadila may do better handicapping for the first time today. Spirit Of Rowdown and Cuban Cigar could prove best of the rest.
