Verdict

Martine's Spirit has shown steady improvement over shorter trips and should show further progress stepping up in distance, but the same comment applies to BALANDRA. She found plenty of trouble over 1m2f at Kempton last month but she's a half-sister to former stablemates and smart middle-distance performers Bauer and Boz and gets the vote to open her account putting her stamina to the test for the first time. Agadir Summer is another to consider as she was noted staying on strongly for third over today's distance at Wolverhampton last time, but Ecossaise will need to step up on her recent form in handicaps if she's to figure.
