Verdict

Zaffy was sent off favourite on both starts as a two-year-old but needs to improve on her third at Beverley to get off the mark, even at this lowly level. It would be no surprise to see Dandy Nicholls' newcomer John Coffey in the firing-line as he belongs to the same family as useful miler Rabi while the four-year-old Alive And Kicking was placed at Ripon and Pontefract last May. Paul Cole sends Joy To The World up from Lambourn but the vote goes to CONE DONKEY, who was only beaten a head in a Wolverhampton maiden in November. There's no reason why he won't continue his improvement back on turf.
