Verdict

ROYAL HOLIDAY was regarded as a Southwell specialist before he gained his first success on Turf at Newcastle last month. He's scored off higher marks on the Fibresand so has to be the selection to complete a hat-trick. Dandarrell, who won twice late last season, has returned in good heart and will make a bold bid to make all while the normally consistent Alluring Star is much better than she showed at Newcastle last time when a short-priced favourite. Rex Romanorum made a successful handicap debut at Pontefract last summer and is just 1lb higher so has to be on the short-list.
