Verdict

TIGHT KNIT made his handicap debut in a higher grade race than this having won his maiden over C&D in November. Not beaten far in fourth, James Tate's colt can come out best. First Sargeant also fared well on his first start handicapping and looks a bigger threat than both Gabrial The Boss and Diletta Tommasa, who arrive on the backs of wins in plating races. Firstkissoflove has gone awry since winning her maiden at Leicester and the less exposed Rainford Glory is preferred to Betzyoucan on his first start for a new trainer.
