Verdict

Salacia beat little when scoring by seven lengths in a C&D maiden last month but should hold her own in this company with a similar effort. Signor Sassi has been beaten in handicaps either side of winning his maiden at Doncaster and SALOOMY is worth sticking with here. He followed up a win at Salisbury with a victory on his handicap debut at Kempton and the hat-trick beckons with further progress likely. Sarah Berry won over 5f here last month but this is much tougher while Ghost Train remains hard to win with and makes no appeal.
