Verdict

NO POPPY has more than acceptable form in the book after a busy and productive juvenile campaign last term and harbours major claims in this lesser grade for the first time. She's made little show in decent events the last twice but this claiming company looks easier and she should be good enough. Danceyourselfdizzy only went down by half a length in a similar claiming contest at Salisbury and should appreciate the return to this trip and grade after a mediocre latest effort. Christmas Aria's consistency should see him involved once again, likewise New Latin, but Sofias Number One made heavy weather of landing the odds in poor Fibresand contest when last seen and this is tougher.
