Verdict

ON THE CUSP has proved suited to the step up in distance and scored over track and trip a week ago. Most of today's penalty is negated by an apprentice's allowance and Ann Stokell's charge gets the vote to follow up in this company. Reach The Beach has over two lengths to make up with the selection on latest running, but the lightly-raced Bethan makes some appeal given she finished third over course and distance on her Fibresand debut. Kyllachykov went very close over 1m3f at this track in January but this extra furlong stretches his stamina to the limit, while multiple course winner Dontpaytheferryman remains badly out of form.
