Verdict

COSIMO DE MEDICI hasn't won a race since obliging in a Cesarewitch trial at Newmarket, and while beaten a fair way on his last two starts, he is now some 6lb below that winning mark and is in a position to take full advantage. Connections were keen to have Richard Hughes aboard Double Cee and the ex-Richard Fahey inmate ran as if he will stay two miles when third over 1m5f in June. Our Folly gave a good account of himself in a hot contest at Pontefract and the five-year-old has to be respected in light of his stable's recent form. Sula Two dropped a big hint at Salisbury and Ron Hodges' inmate appears to get on well with his young claimer. Hi Note realised a mark in excess of 130 over hurdles and though this is her third race inside the space of 10 days, Sheena West's mare appears to be holding her form.
