Verdict

Master Malt's second to River Maigue at Ayr last year was a very good first effort and he looks sure to win races. But he may just need this so we'll give another chance to TRADEWINDS, who pulled much too hard when favourite at Lingfield following a promising debut on the Polytrack here in December. Carole's Destrier should be thereabouts again while Yabadabadoo should improve on his debut third at Exeter last month. Calusa Star looks the pick of Philip Hobbs' runners on jockey bookings while it may be worth keeping an eye on newcomer Yes I Will.
