Verdict

A market move here for Fentara would be interesting as she doesn't look badly handicapped on her win at Newcastle last season. Kempski was pulled up when Ockey De Neulliac won a seller here last month and the winner went on to land a claimer at Wetherby with the minimum of fuss. Arisea goes unpenalised for her win in a conditionals' event at Catterick and has to go on the short-list, while Forestside has already won twice over C&D this year and has been running well in Ireland. CODE BLUE is very lightly raced and, despite racing with the choke out, wasn't beaten far on his reappearance at Uttoxeter. He's already won on heavy ground over today's C&D and may be the one to beat again today at the weights.
