Verdict

Dancing Cosmos has won two poor handicaps at Wolverhampton and may find one or two of these too strong. Apache Gold has no problems with this trip though he appeared to enjoy dropping back to 6f at Cork last time. Secret Locket was a bit disappointing when favourite here last week but Khelino has now dropped to her lowest ever mark on her 46th start so should be kept on the right side. ROSE ANGEL has yet to win a race but the assessor has loosened his grip a little and she ran well enough on her latest start here to suggest it could be her turn tonight.
