Norton also gets the leg up on the Mark Johnston-trained GOLD MERLION in the 1m2f handicap run earlier on the card, (6.30pm) and the three-year-old filly can help initiate a double for the rider.

The daughter of Alhaarth showed plenty of promise in a light juvenile campaign which got off to a winning start in a Thirsk maiden, the form of which has worked out well with the third Spennithorne winning twice since and defying a mark of 82 in handicap company. That suggests the selection is well treated here off a mark of 76 and we know she handles soft ground as she was beaten just a length into third in a Goodwood nursery last August on such a surface.

This is her first run back since finishing midfield in a valuable sales race at the Curragh in September, but she won first-time-out last term and, given her breeding, there is almost certainly better to come now she tackles this sort of trip. That her stable is firing on all cylinders and can boast a 26% strike rate at this track with all runners yielding a £8.33 profit to £1 level-stakes, provides further encouragement for a bet.
