Verdict

A fairly inauspicious start as none of these are exactly prolific winners. Key To Milan did score at this level at Taunton in October but was well beaten on his only subsequent start over 2m here on Boxing Day. Black Phantom would have a big chance on his best form but appears to be going backwards while the lightly-raced Royal Peak has shown nothing so far. The Wee Lass often ruins her chance by pulling too hard but has ability and would go close in this if Michael Nolan can get her settled but the vote goes to CEEPEEGEE, fifth over 2m6f here last week and more likely run his race then most of his rivals.
