Verdict

White Shift was victorious here in September over this trip and wasn't helped by the extra furlong most recently so should do better over her preferred distance. Speedyfix is in good heart but appears to be favouring five furlongs at present. Tim Etherington has Embra in good nick and with the cheek-pieces that have garnered significant improvement on once again he looks to be a major protagonist. Downhill Skier narrowly won at Yarmouth last time and is respected on the merit of that run but Jim Crowley is booked for the ride on CAVITIE and he looks well poised to strike after three good runs at Wolverhampton.
