Verdict

It's a bit of as surprise to see BAYTOWN KESTREL dropped into this grade as she acquitted herself well in a couple of Class 3 nurseries at York last month. She can come out best if running up to the same level in this. Black Treacle won a similar event at Beverley last time but has plenty to find with the selection on today's terms and Limegrove makes more appeal at the weights. Lovely Lily has plenty of scope and may turn out best of the remainder.
