Verdict

Charlie Hills' runners at this venue are always worthy of attention and LOVELOCKS is no different. She finished a close-up sixth at Ascot on last month's debut and normal progress should see her off the mark in this. Charlotte's Day hails from another yard with an excellent strike rate at the track while Richard Fahey rattles up plenty of two-year-old winners here and Western Sands can figure stepping up in trip. Surprisingly, Mark Johnston's record is less impressive but Power Up doesn't know that and made a promising debut at Nottingham earlier this month. The newcomer Light Weight cost 145,000 euros and is worth noting for any support.
