Verdict

Vittachi has been given a chance by the handicapper following his first effort in a nursery in October but he needs to improve on the form shown that day and previously to trouble the judge and a better bet looks to be PUSH ME, who gets the vote over Honest Broker. Mark Johnston's colt was slightly disappointing at Wolverhampton last month but the yard have their runners in good form and he may improve for the switch to the Fibresand so has to be strongly considered in a weak race. Tealing has improved with each start and was good value for his win here last month but that was in a claimer when trained by David Barron and he may now be best watched on his first start for Richard Guest. Sylvester Kirk's She's My Rock ran better in a nursery at Wolverhampton last time and has claims but preference is for Push Me. John Quinn's filly has only raced in sellers and claimers so far but has done well in them, including when winning first time up at Wolverhampton, and she looks reasonably well treated for her debut in a nursery.
