Verdict

Tea In Transvaal scored on heavy going at Salisbury in October but has been well beaten in both starts this season and finished tailed off at Nottingham. Plucky Dip has been performing consistently well, though in lower grade and he's on his highest ever mark. SAHRA AL KHADRA landed a minor handicap at Warwick and almost defied a 4lb rise in better company at Doncaster where he was only caught close home by Billingsgate. Back in this grade he's expected to regain winning ways though Spirit Raiser looks a threat as she has made progress with each race and only just failed to catch Know Your Name at Newbury. Living Leader has only won on Polytrack but has produced two good efforts on Turf in recent weeks so looks best of the remainder.
