Race Verdict

Royal Straight readily won a selling handicap on his latest start over 1m1f at Musselburgh in October and warrants plenty of respect returning off a 7lb higher mark, but handicap debutant AVISON edges the vote. Richard Fahey's charge improved in each of his three maiden starts last season, lost out by a nose on his latest outing over 1m1f at Ayr in October, and an opening mark of 62 looks fairly lenient. Spavento may improve for her fourth at Haydock eight days ago (first public appearance since October) and has each-way claims.

Selection: Avison        Danger: Royal Straight        Alternative: Spavento
