Verdict

It was very heavy ground when Kozmina Bay won at Yarmouth and she'll find conditions very different here. However, she's on the upgrade and should go well but may find the concession of 9lb to MICQUUS beyond her. Andrew Balding's charge made his handicap debut over this trip at Kempton and produced an improved effort so further progress will see him difficult to beat. Abundantly is by Sakhee and likely to improve now tackling a suitable trip while Manbaa makes her handicap debut and will be better for her run at Kempton last month. Mexican Wave has been staying on at one pace over shorter so he's another who could make some progress.
