Verdict

Norfolk Sky ran really well here last week though that was over 1m4f and she has an inexperienced apprentice on board here. EVER FORTUNE won two from four in his first campaign and caught the eye with a fine effort on his reappearance at Chepstow where he would have finished much closer but for being impeded. He can improve again and take this as though Standing Strong ran with credit at Brighton last time he's still a maiden after 16 starts. Xinbama is slipping to a mark he should be capable of winning from soon and Shelley Birkett was on board when he ran well last time.
