Improved form in the autumn and made it 3-4 in handicaps when winning at Lingfield last time (2m7f, good to soft; has also won on soft); this unexposed mare is clearly thriving and holds strong claims once more.

J: Marc Goldstein

T: Michael Madgwick

C&D winner who scored on his reappearance at Lingfield (2m, good to soft) last November and, after two lesser runs here, was a good second at Lingfield (2m, heavy) last month; 3lb out of the handicap today but holds each-way possibilities nevertheless.

One win in 18 starts came in a four-runner hurdle in November and form of that race is decidedly shaky; poor under both codes since then including when well behind Reverberation over C&D in December.

Unable to land any sort of blow when 200-1 for handicap debut at Lingfield (2m3f, good to soft; first-time cheekpieces) in November and effectively 1lb higher from out of the weights here.

Verdict

The improvers are Shewearsthewellies and ABBEYHILL, who are clocking up the wins and look as if they will relish every yard. Slight preference is for the latter who may have the greater scope for further improvement. They would need to find that improvement if several of the others put their best foot forward but there are major doubts over that group, among which Wilderness and Rostello appeal most.[Richard Austen]
