Wolverhampton selling winner Nun Today was not disgraced in a nursery on a return visit to the venue last month and she has to be respected but preference is for WEET IN NERJA, who gets the vote over Iorek Byrnison. The last mentioned is sprint bred and it will of interest to see how the David Nicholls-trained colt gets on racing over seven furlongs for the first time on his debut in a nursery. Jim Boyle's Gassal did not progress from her nursery debut at Kempton on her next start there and has been given a break since then so she may do better now. Identity has not progressed as much as may have been anticipated from an encouraging start and may be best watched giving weight away all round, while Silent Hero looks one of the lesser lights in the string of Michael Jarvis. The vote then goes to Reg Hollinshead's Weet In Nerja, who has run well here before and he may do better now sent handicapping. (Nick Millard)
