Verdict

Ayr Missile should be winning this season judged on last year's best efforts notably a second at Haydock. Clock Opera has failed to show any progress on the Polytrack so far this year, but the return to this surface may help and the same applies to NEXT DOOR. Sent off favourite at Wolverhampton on her comeback, she could only manage third, but will be straighter today and David Barron's filly can open her account. Macaabra showed some ability when placed on the Polytrack on her debut in November, while Sorcellerie has claims on last May's debut at Newmarket as she returns to action for a new trainer.
