Verdict

DEFINITE ROW got bogged down in bottomless ground on her debut under Rules at Sligo. She started favourite that day so is obviously thought capable of better and can open her account today. Retrieve The Stick can only improve on her second at Market Rasen and should be winning soon but Rev Up Ruby let supporters down at Kelso last time. The others have a bit to prove and newcomers Brave Mouse and Miss Pheebs are best watched unless the market suggests otherwise.
