Verdict

Most of these are stepping up to this trip for the first time and will find it tough coming up the straight though it shouldn't bother CONVERSING. Mark Johnston's colt was just touched off over the trip at Kempton and his experience should prove enough to get off the mark in a moderate handicap. Dark Justice was sent over 1m6f at Nottingham and he only weakened late on so should have the necessary stamina while Flamingo Beat looked as though he needed further when staying on at one pace over 1m2f at Lingfield. Annalova hasn't shown much but Samantha Bell, who has ridden ten winners in Ireland, is excellent value for her 7lb claim and has joined Richard Fahey.
