Verdict

Most of these have been plying their trade on the all-weather including Fairy Wing, whose last two victories came on Southwell's Fibresand. Dashwood landed a poor Wolverhampton handicap in February and not surprisingly failed to cope with an 8lb rise on a return visit but MACDONALD MOR, though still a maiden, has dropped to a lowly rating compared to his early form and blinkers could bring about enough improvement to see him gain his first success. Masked Dance rarely runs away from Southwell these days and is poorly handicapped back on Turf.
