Verdict

Most of the Tregoning string are running well and the lightly-raced CHATTERER can confirm the stable's good form here. Noted staying on well in the closing stages of the Newbury handicap won by Silken Thoughts, she'll improve for the step up to a mile and a half and looks attractively treated off a mark of 68. Tiny Temper and Sister Andrea are both interesting moving into handicap company for the first time after showing maiden promise but Lauberhorn looks the most potent threat. The gelding, up 3lb for a recent Brighton success, is still 5lb lower than when scoring at Pontefract in the summer of 2010 and the fine form of his yard is a major plus. Bolanderi and On The Feather make some appeal but both have their fair share of weight.
