Verdict

Staff Sergeant has only run here three times and won twice though he's 6lb higher than last month's victory. SHORT SHRIFT was making her debut here when winning comfortably on New Year's Day. That was only her second start for Richard Fahey and a 4lb rise doesn't look enough to prevent a follow-up. Afro had just over a length to spare over Yasir over 1m4f a fortnight ago and is another likely to make progress though the runner-up has been beaten subsequently and is closely matched with Monzino on earlier running.
