Verdict

Handwoven has been placed in 11 of his 19 starts but, after almost ending his losing run here earlier in the month, didn't build on that at Hamilton last time. Tyrsal ran a shocker when favourite at Nottingham last month but Marweena isn't highly tried on her handicap debut and Reaffirmed wasn't beaten far over 6f here last time. LIBRA ROMANA was heavily punted at Kempton in January but only beat one home. She's been given plenty of time to recover and a switch to Turf can see this well-bred filly belatedly get off the mark.
