Verdict

Surrey-based handler Olly Stevens has made a bright start to his career and THE ART OF RACING can add to his tally. A winner for Richard Hannon at York in September, he was just touched off by Mayfield Girl on his comeback at Nottingham earlier this month and a 1lb rise should be easily managed. Royal Acquisition was odds-on for a Lingfield maiden in November and duly obliged and there's no reason he shouldn't be as effective on Turf while Sica's Dream has been in good form on Polytrack though he looked ready for another furlong last time. Windforpower has won three times already this year though all of his five victories to date have been on Polytrack. Queen Flush makes her handicap debut but showed really good speed on her reappearance at Doncaster and could have got in lightly.
