Verdict

BRIANNSTA arrives in good form which is enough to win him the vote ahead of Avrilo and Ask Jenny. John Long's experienced campaigner has achieved his last three successes at this track with the most recent of them coming on his penultimate start from a 3lb lower mark. He's run well since, isn't too badly drawn and should be there or thereabouts. Ask Jenny hasn't troubled the judge in two previous visits here but is well enough handicapped on the pick of her efforts to get into the shake-up whilst Avrilo ran well here in a maiden in October and could grab a share of the spoils. Bountiful Bay is drawn widest of all but has raced prominently of late and may be able to attain a decent position in the early stages. She's not as exposed as many in this field and could give a good account whilst Cool Sands' stable is in better form than when he was last in action. It takes a leap of faith to support him though so we'll stick with the in-forn Briannsta.
