Verdict

Rosie Probert showed no signs of ring-rustiness at Stratford and has now won her last four starts on the Flat and over hurdles. Three Kingdoms won over a longer trip at Wetherby on his return but Vibrato Valtat needs to find plenty on his second at Newton Abbot in the spring, though Daryl Jacob prefers him to unlucky Wincanton runner-up Maxi Chop. Quick Jack had a bit in hand at Listowel and should have more to offer but Falcarragh's winning run came to an end at Market Rasen in September and the handicapper probably has his measure now. LITTLE POP made all for an easy victory at Uttoxeter and can continue on an upward curve by landing this for the Twiston-Davies yard as Deep Trouble looks less well treated on his handicap bow. Just When may also struggle off a high enough mark and McCoy's mount Edmaaj has been very disappointing so far.
