Verdict

Abated looks the clear form pick on her second at Kempton in October but her stable hasn't really been firing lately and, at the likely odds, it may be worth taking on the filly with SMOKETHATTHUNDERS. James Toller's charge was hampered at the start and then ran green on his debut at Newmarket in November but shaped nicely in the closing stages and was beaten less than four lengths at the line. That experience will have done him the world of good and this isn't the strongest of maidens. Aglaophonos was another who ran green on debut, at Kempton in October, and should do better this year.
