Verdict

As long has this surface suits SHOSTAKOVICH as much as the Fibresand does, and it should, then Sylvester Kirk's runner should be landing a hat-trick. A winner of a seller at Southwell before a runway success at that venue in a handicap the selection should win this well as this doesn't look any tougher. Slatey Hen is well served by the framing of the race and is open to improvement, which he'll need, while Cootehill Lass sets the standard on the ratings but will need to bounce back to form now down graded. Whipphound will find this easier than recent assignments so might yet show more but Shostakovich should be winning this well.
