Verdict

The booking of Paul Hanagan for SHALLOW BAY looks significant and he can make a winning handicap debut. Having shaped nicely behind Conduct at Sandown, Walter Swinburn's son of Shamardal now goes handicapping off a mark of 73. Titivation is a similar prospect having impressed at Nottingham when seeing off a Luca Cumani improver but her mark is 4lb higher, The Caped Crusader chases a hat-trick with soft ground a major positive, whilst Jamie Spencer is back on board Think Its All Over who is of more interest now back over ten furlongs. The jockey bookings suggest that Richard Fahey may not be too confident of winning this race for the second year in a row, and bigger dangers may be Christmas Light (with market support) or the wildly in-form Hail Bold Chief.
