Race Verdict

Dandy Nicholls does exceptionally well in races of this nature and looks to have another outstanding contender in the shape of FOL HOLLOW. He's arguably a shade flattered by his current mark of 80 but his most recent success came in a Catterick claimer last July and he'll take plenty of beating if resuming somewhere near peak fitness. The three-year-old filly Dark Ages gets lumps of weight from the selection and could be open to some more improvement this term. She is feared most, with Whiskey Junction possibly next best.

Selection: Fol Hollow        Danger: Dark Ages        Alternative: Whiskey Junction
