Verdict

Richard Hannon is already on the score-sheet and he should find a race for Miss Brazil before long. Shimba Hills ran well at Wolverhampton last month while Secret Pursuit improved with every run over the winter. Alexanor and Master Dan are unexposed but so is MISS SOPHISTICATED and David Barron's filly, who stepped up markedly on previous efforts when a close third over 7f at Beverley on her final start last year, looks the type to do well in handicaps this season. She's hasn't been overburdened by the assessor. Top weight Golden Spear may need this but is worth monitoring in the betting.
