Race Verdict

Little Jimmy Odsox steps up in trip after a poor effort on his reappearance and he has claims if seeing out the trip but preference is for his stablemate, NO POPPY. The Chineur filly struck at Doncaster last time and another big run is expected despite a 5lb rise with the soft ground in her favour. Beckermet posted a solid effort on his reappearance over 6f at Doncaster and the step up to 7f will suit so he is highly respected.

Selection: No Poppy        Danger: Beckermet        Alternative: Little Jimmy Odsox
