Verdict

Protaras finally opened his account at Folkestone last time and makes more appeal back in handicap company than Jivry, who has struggled since a debut win at Nottingham last year. However, it looks like the penny has dropped with ZAFARANA as she ran away with a maiden at Kempton on her return from a lay-off. Ed Dunlop's filly is taken to follow up on her handicap bow now she's discovered what the game's all about. Dansili Dancer has had a short break and may do better here, but the remainder are hard to fancy in their current form.
