Verdict

Willie Musson could hardly have found a worse race for Safwaan to lose his maiden tag here in March and a long absence could prove a problem. Count Ceprano has won nine races in total but his last five wins have been on Turf. Delightful Sleep made a very fair handicap debut over a trip too short at Lingfield last month and should have made enough progress to make a bold bid but it's about time ESSELL was losing her maiden tag and this looks a fair opportunity after her staying-on run over 7f last time.
