Verdict

The lightly-raced SUGAR TOWN opened her account at Thirsk last time when returning a shock 33/1 winner. But there was no fluke about it given Gladsome and Les Gar Gan were both well beaten and Peter Niven's filly is fancied to follow-up raised only 2lb. Mrs Warren is harder to fancy raised 6lb for scoring at Brighton while Alexandrakollontai has done all his winning over six furlongs so far. An Chulainn has bits of form that give her a chance but she's hard to predict.
