Verdict

PENIAPHOBIA looks likely to start a short-price in the opener. A winner at Pontefract on his debut, he found only one too good in better company than this at York last month and Lee Topliss' allowance negates most of a 5lb penalty. Redcar winner Innocently faded badly behind the selection at York last time and Blockade looks more reliable as she still ran well despite finishing only fifth in the Hilary Needler at Beverley last time. Better is expected from Loma Mor after her well beaten third on Fibesand but Beltor was tailed off on his debut and Naught Betty makes no appeal on breeding.
