Verdict

Baltic Prince enters the fray in very good spirits but may find this trip on the sharp side and it's TWILIGHT PEARL who gets the vote. She gained her first success on her final start on soft ground at Nottingham and looks the type to do better this season. The lightly-raced Edith Anne showed some promise in her first campaign and makes her handicap debut from a fair mark while Megaleka will be better for her run at Southwell and her best form last season came on ground with plenty of give. This isn't the best of races so Teetotal shouldn't be dismissed despite his big weight.
