Verdict

Poetic Choice has won over 6f at Wolverhampton but remains 7lb higher while Relation Alexander scored over track and trip in September but failed to figure subsequently. Why Not Now makes her handicap debut along with Despot and Ryan Moore's presence on the latter takes the eye. Glebe Spirit returned a losing favourite in heavy ground but better is expected back on this surface. However, TELEGRAPH is dropped in class after returning to action at Bath and she gets a tentative vote with Oisin Murphy's claim further helping her cause.
