Verdict

Mack's Sister had Torres Del Paine well behind when scoring over C&D in November and has been raised 3lb for that success. But that could still be enough to prevent her going in again judged on her previous form and another recent winner in MICROLIGHT is preferred. He won at Lingfield last month and there's room for some improvement as John Long's charge scored off a higher mark than today back in 2010. Diamond Vine and Rapid Water could prove best of the rest in a poor handicap unless Ever The Optimist has progressed since his modest efforts on the turf last summer.
