Verdict

The presence of ALZAVOLA appears to have frightened off much of the opposition and Sir Mark Prescott's filly can get off the mark. Despite her dam having enough speed to win over 5f as a juvenile, it appears that handicapping over longer trips has always been the long term aim as the trainer dutifully sent her out for three runs in quick succession before drawing stumps for the season. Special Report is a maiden after 15 races though he did perform with some credit at Nottingham last week. Exclusive Waters hasn't built upon a couple of promising starts last term and Soubrette is yet to beat another horse in her three outings to date.
