Verdict

A reasonable maiden can be taken by PIPPBROOK MINISTAR, with Penrod Ballantyne and Takajan others for the short-list. The last-named, trained by Sylvester Kirk, was a shade disappointing last time out at Kempton, but he had previously shown up well both here and at Southwell in similar contests, and if he can return to that sort of form then he looks capable of going close again. Penrod Ballantyne showed some improvement at Wolverhampton earlier in the month, and the Indian Ridge colt raced there as if this drop back in trip would be a positive move, in spite of pedigree suggesting otherwise. A market check is advised. Mint Whip is not out of this on her first try at this venue, although she will have to show more than we have seen so far if she is to win it. Trading Nation is not certain to appreciate the drop back from 7f and we will side with Pippbrook Ministar. Jim Boyle's filly was green and all over the place on debut over course and distance earlier in February, but once she got the hang of things she picked up very well to finish runner-up. Provided this does not come too soon for her, then we expect her to have learned plenty that day and she can hopefully confirm the promise she showed by breaking her duck this time.
