Verdict

A quintet assemble for this 10-furlong handicap where Flag Of Glory will probably prove popular among punters after getting his nose in front at Wolverhampton last time, though the handicapper has not gone overboard with just a 1lb rise for that and preference is for DARK PROMISE. The Michael Jarvis-trained filly should appreciate the return to this trip after going well for a long way over 1m 4f at Newmarket last time. This is her first try on the Polytrack, but providing she acts on it then she is relatively unexposed having had only one run in a handicap over this trip and looks an attractive proposition. Sweet Child O'Mine is respected after a Nottingham win a couple of starts back and with this trip a potential source of improvement and Commerce is another who could get heavily involved after a 1lb drop for a reasonable effort here last time.
