Verdict

Short N Sweet made a very encouraging debut in a strong maiden at York and was well supported to go one better at Nottingham. However, she flopped badly enough for the stewards to hold an enquiry and that cannot have been her true form. LATCH ONTO BLUE wasn't beaten far in fourth on his debut at Doncaster then ran into a Hannon-trained hotpot at Windsor. He'll probably improve again and gets the vote. Monksford Lady made a fair start over 6f at Carlisle and should make progress but Bahango and Poolstock will need to find more.
