Verdict

Sir Mark Prescott has won two of the last three and ALWILDA can continue the trend now tackling a suitable trip. The daughter of Hernando out of the classy Albanova won over a mile at Southwell as a juvenile and has been staying on over shorter trips on Polytrack in both starts this term. Nateeja has already demonstrated a fondness for the trip having scored very easily at Wolverhampton which is why she's now on a 10lb higher mark. Sunblazer lost his maiden tag over 1m4f at Windsor and the extra won't be a problem but Astrum is 11lb higher than for his latest success at Warwick.
