Verdict

MECCA'S ANGEL is very speedy and didn't run a bad race in her first season. She appeals as the type to come to hand early and, back in a handicap after three runs in Listed company at the end of the last campaign, can show these rivals a clean pair of heels. Blithe Spirit was another consistent sort last season and might make a race of it though, as with the others, the market will probably indicate what's expected. Deeds And Words may have gone over the top when well behind the selection at Redcar in October but 6f looks his trip. Eastern Impact was third behind leading 1000 Guineas fancy Rizeena at Sandown last May but this will be his first start since.
