Verdict

Brian Meehan has only just got started for the year but has already struck winning form and CRAFTY ROBERTO can add to the tally. A well-connected son of Intikhab, he made a very promising debut at Kempton late last month before just failing to hold the late thrust of Ruby Brook over a mile at Lingfield nine days ago. He'll be very difficult to beat here though Mark Johnston introduces a choicely-bred type in Falmouth Bay, a half-brother to several winners and out of a high-class USA mare. Sofias Number One steps up to this trip after a couple of fair runs over 6f but Miss Firefox will need to improve on her run here last month to take a hand.
