Verdict

The betting should provide the main clues to this but there was nothing wrong with the performances of Alan King's French import TANTE SISSI at around this trip in her native country and she will take some beating. Stablemate Who's Afraid is one for the future as she's the first foal of a mare who is a half-sister to Azertyuiop. Dancing Teasel has plenty of pace in her pedigree and should be prominent while Megagrace attracted major support on her debut over 1m6f at Huntingdon and only faded in the closing stages. Pearl Mountain made a highly promising debut when caught close home over 1m6f at Towcester and didn't act on Polytrack when sent to Lingfield subsequently. Young Mags is another to keep an eye on for the future as she's out of a decent winning bumper/hurdler.
