Verdict

Something went amiss with Natasha Rostova at Newmarket last time but she won on her racecourse debut at Wolverhampton in good style before that. Handicap debutants Cape Samba, Tantamount and Haymarket could make their presence felt but the vote goes to HECTOR'S CHANCE. He was only beaten a nose off today's mark last time having beaten the re-opposing Daring Damsel a couple of lengths over C&D before that and gets another chance in this. Night Flash has won twice over shorter trips at this track but never figured on his recent reappearance at Nottingham.
