Verdict

SILKEN EXPRESS has been the subject of strong market confidence on both of her starts and having got off the mark at Ffos Las, she could well have been let in lightly off a mark of 73. Signifer continues to campaign at this level though both he and Blackdown Fair would have solid claims if they were able to reproduce any of their juvenile form. Heartsong blasted the opposition away from the stalls at Sandown and appears capable of showing his form on any surface. Supreme Quest needed eight starts to get off the mark and Roger Charlton's charge has questions to answer after a flop at Bath. O'Gorman has struggled to recapture some of the form he showed for Kevin Ryan.
