Verdict

Not the most straightforward start for punters but AUTOMOTIVE should deliver a strong showing for the ever-improving Shelley Birkett, The gelding followed up a snug Newbury success with a respectable effort two weeks later off a 4lb higher mark behind Oratorio's Joy at Leicester and all three career successes for Julia Feilden's charge have come over 9-10f on good ground. Left on an unchanged mark after that run in the Midlands, the son of Beat Hollow is expected to be in the mix in an open contest. Vodka Wells looks rather harshly treated on what he's achieved but is one of few potential improvers on show whereas Who's That Chick, seems on a fair mark. She's solid and consistent and warrants respect along with Enriching and Highlife Dancer, both of whom have been performing well enough to contend with trip and ground suitable for both.
