Race Verdict

CAPE SAFARI is thriving at present and carries a double penalty, incurred for recent victories at Southwell and Leicester. It could be that James Tate's charge has improved for the switch to slow ground, or it could also be that this trip has brought out the best in him. If he handles the forecast better ground, a hat-trick could feasibly be in the offing. Cockney Sparrow has been handed a fair mark after breaking her duck at Kempton recently and is respected now upped in trip, likewise Good Morning Star, who wasn't beaten far off 2lb lower at Lingfield in February and should relish this stiffer test.

Selection: Cape Safari        Danger: Cockney Sparrow        Alternative: Good Morning Star
