Verdict

A couple of these made a winning return to action with Mash Potato scoring at Newcastle and Astrum successful at Warwick. Both face tougher tasks off higher marks today and it was only a seller than Lady Lunchalot beat Winter Music in at Lingfield earlier this month. Autrisk was expected to do better over 1m4f at Kempton last time but never threatened in third and a chance is taken on handicap debutant THWART. Placed over 7f at Warwick in October, she's a half-sister to a 1m2f winner and should improve for today's extra distance. Luv U Whatever has been in winning form on the Fibresand but has something to prove back on this surface.
