Verdict

Sofi's Spirit just edges it at the weights having landed a hat-trick this month that included defeats of both Proventi and Windforpower. A line through the latter also gives her the beating of Marmot Bay and she looks sure to go very close. HARDY RED has been running well in handicaps and takes a drop in class after a recent third at Kempton. That was his first run since September and he's fancied to improve enough to come out best in this. Copper Rag and Schottische are easily overlooked on what little they've shown so far.
