Verdict

THEDEBOFTHEYEAR is undeniably well handicapped at present and hinted at a revival at Ludlow last time when well backed. She has won on a soft surface here in the past and it could be her turn today. Brockwell Park is still a maiden but has place claims again but Joseph Mercer has become disappointing. Qalinas had Rocky Bender back in third when winning at Lingfield but there may not be much between the pair on today's revised terms. Tin Pot Man is a course and distance winner but this may be a confidence-booster before going back over fences.
