Forecast

Poyle Charlotte (13/8), Acadian Angel (3/1), Zafaranah (11/2), Seyasah (7/1), Sweet Symphony (10/1), Katie Lee (16/1), Sugar Coating (16/1), Natalie Express (40/1)

Verdict

A trappy affair but POYLE CHARLOTTE appears a definite improver and should have more to come on just a fifth career start and third for Ralph Beckett. Arguably unlucky when runner-up at Kempton last month after being unable to obtain the clearest of passages, she's been raised an acceptable 2lb for the run and can gain compensation. Seyasah failed to fire last time but is respected on her previous Yarmouth run when a neat scorer and Zafaranah is usually there or thereabouts. Arcadian Angel is coming down the weights steadily and De Sousa is booked, whilst Sweet Symphony houses a consistent profile which should eventually be rewarded. Sugar Coating wasn't on her game last time but has chances off this mark on previous maiden efforts.
