Verdict

Golden Acorn has spent most of her hurdling career to date in sellers and claimers and it was at the lowest level in which she got off the mark at Stratford. Jaja De Jau was second at Taunton in March but beaten in a claimer at Worcester a couple of weeks ago, though her stable remains in decent form. AMISTRESS was a decent sort on the level and took just two runs to open her account over hurdles at Wincanton. The handicapper has taken no chances with Renee Robeson's five-year-old but Conor Shoemark is good value for his 7lb claim and a follow up is a distinct possibility. June French may be better than she's shown so far and could be best of the rest.
