Although all her victories have come at the five furlong distance, POPPY IN THE WIND has proven on several occasions that she does stay this trip. She twice went close at this distance back in February and March, beaten by less than a length on both occasions off much higher marks. She’s now five pounds below her last winning mark and can capitalise to take victory under Hollie Doyle. Major Crispies won at Newcastle three starts ago and would have gone much closer over course and distance latest had he behaved better in the stalls and not missed the break. He’s a pound lower here and rates as the main danger.
