Guest's Miniskirt set to turn heads at Wolverhampton

By Anita Chambers

MINISKIRT was a wide-margin winner at Southwell before Christmas and she is one to follow in the Ladbrokes Handicap at Wolverhampton.

Rae Guest's charge hit the bar in her first three maiden starts, twice finishing second after making a belated start to her racing career last October.

The Naaqoos filly finally came good in Nottinghamshire though, when she powered home by eight lengths as an odds-on favourite in what was probably only an average event at best.

She had plenty in hand on the official figures and after setting a fair gallop, Miniskirt was not hard pushed to win in such convincing style off a mark of 70.

The handicapper has taken a sensible attitude to that success and her subsequent 1lb perhaps best sums up the merit of the form.

However, Miniskirt could only beat what was put in front of her and with her confidence now suitably augmented, she can start to make some progress through the ranks.

LYNNGALE is the pick in the first division of the Coral Connect Handicap after just getting edged out by a neck at Lingfield last week.

Kristin Stubbs' charge remains some 10lb higher than when winning at Bath last July, but recent performances suggest the four-year-old is capable of holding her own at this kind of level.

TRENDING showed signs of a return to form when second last time and can take of advantage of his seriously depleted mark in the £20 Risk-Free Bet At Unibet Handicap.

OFFSHORE showed an affinity for the Southwell Fibresand when winning at the track last month and he can follow up in the 32Red Handicap at the Nottinghamshire venue.
