Verdict

The sharp track should suit Favorite Girl, who has been struggling to get home on stiffer courses. Tannerman was just beaten in a seller here on New Year's Day and went on to finish third at Doncaster while Raktiman and Quadrato can't be ignored. But RIDDLESTOWN deserves a change of luck and, though 4lb higher than when second at Southwell last time, Caroline Fryer's charge is probably the one to beat. Lukey Luke is now tried in blinkers but may have run out of chances.
