Verdict

Missile Command had been threatening to win before gaining his first ever victory over the trip last week, though a 10lb rise looks harsh. Runner-up Catwilldo is finding it difficult to lose her maiden tag but fourth-placed Copper Dock has dropped a massive 20lb in the ratings in a year and Joseph O'Brien is a positive booking. HI EMPRESS has been gradually progressing and was having just her fourth start when a very good third behind Cottrell last month. She makes her handicap debut from what looks a very lenient mark and can gain her first success. Breezolini has won three times in the UK but has only run once on Polytrack when she was well beaten.
