Verdict

Three newcomers and the remainder here being lightly raced means a market check is advised, but we'll tentatively side with FEELING FAB in preference to Purple Sage and Simplification. Mark Johnston's runner was a beaten short-priced favourite last time after impressing on debut, but can repay her previous backers this time. Purple Sage, an expensive purchase, looks to be the improving sort for Barry Hills and impressed in a couple of better grade maidens than this last month at Newmarket. Simplification's form is similar, and Richard Hannon's two-year-olds usually come on after a race or two. But in a contest where a market check is essential, we'll side with Feeling Fab.
