Verdict

Lost Legend was third on his handicap debut at Sandown but may have to drop a few pounds before getting his head in front. Polly Peachum has been well beaten in two starts over this trip since winning over 2m1f at Stratford in the autumn but Dalavar is probably improving with experience and Award Winner had Be My Light back in third when successful at Uttoxeter on New Year's Eve, though seems better when McCoy is doing the steering. USSEE was third at Doncaster in January and went one better when chasing home Midnight Belle over today's trip at Ludlow. Ben Case's mare can get off the mark today.
