Verdict

Without a win on Turf, Woolfall Sovereign is rated a barely credible 30lb higher on this surface. But the prolific course winner is more exposed than Forest Edge, a winner at Kempton last week where he beat Peace Seeker and Stonefield Flyer. The latter is also preferred to recent winners on heavy going, Even Stevens and Arctic Feeling. With Addictive Dream and Burning Thread looking high enough in the weights now, this can go to the progressive filly EQUITANIA with the in-form Silvestre De Sousa taking over the reins.
