Race Verdict

Despite dropping to a handy mark now, this trip looks on the sharp side for Braveheart Move while top weight Licence To Till struggled to impact on his Newmarket return and is proving increasingly hard to predict. That last comment cannot be said about SUGAR HICCUP, however, who proved most consistent at the end of last season and rounded of her campaign with a narrow second to Albert Bridge in a decent handicap at Newbury in the Autumn. That form looks rock solid and with the promise of more to come this term, she could be one to keep onside.

Selection: Sugar Hiccup        Danger: Licence To Till        Alternative: Braveheart Move
