Verdict

Eoin Walsh impressed with his handling of SHIRATAKI at Newbury ten days ago and keeps the ride on Peter Hiatt's charge, who can go in again from just 4lb higher. Kittens won a Class 6 at Leicester then ran a fine race in two grades higher on the same track last time so has to go on the short-list. Aldwick Bay ran poorly behind Breakheart at Sandown and Ice Nelly was a long way behind the same winner at Salisbury though that was her first run since October and she'll improve. Swift Blade scored at Goodwood in September but has only had a run over hurdles in April subsequently.
