Race Verdict

The booking of William Buick for Rocco Breeze suggests that the colt is showing all the right signs at home and, following a pleasing reappearance here last week, he warrants close consideration. LADY MANDY still looked green when making her handicap bow here three weeks ago but is clearly handicapped to win off this mark and could thrive now up to 1m4f, so she gets the nod. Quiet Appeal rates the pick of the remainder.

Selection: Lady Mandy        Danger: Rocco Breeze        Alternative: Quiet Appeal
