Verdict

Sergeant Pink has obvious claims bidding for a hat-trick but there was little between him and Thackeray over course and distance earlier this month. Vodka Wells, Painted Tail and hurdles winner Spot The Pro are all unexposed on the Flat and open to improvement, but a tentative vote goes the way of VICKY VALENTINE. She went very close in a higher grade at Pontefract last month and Garry Whillans' 5lb allowance could prove crucial in this.
