Verdict

It should pay to stick with KASTINI in this. He's gone close the last twice including on the Turf track at Lingfield last month and a first-time visor may give him the edge with Richard Hughes back on board. The Firm also has leading claims on his third in similar company at Leicester when Reflect ran way below par. Exclusive Waters has yet to win on this surface but can race off a lower mark as a consequence while Fanzine lost her way last year having made the frame over track and trip on her reappearance, but she could prove a threat if getting her act together this season.
