Verdict

FINITY RUN went very close over a shorter trip at Pontefract a week ago and can finally get off the mark here. Between Us was beaten out of sight on her return to action at Thirsk last month having gone close on her introduction at Lingfield in December and Hawkeshead was also well beaten at the same track last time despite finishing third. Incitement has yet to match his debut fourth at Newbury in a couple of starts this term while In The Crowd may do best of the rest upped to middle-distances for the first time.
