Verdict

Nurpur showed her liking for this trip and fast ground at Haydock but has a penalty to contend with and this is a slightly better class race. Future Reference has been making steady progress and is another penalised for his victory over 7f at Wolverhampton where he stayed on strongly. Saint Jerome is up 5lb for a battling all-the-way success at Chepstow while Simply Shining was a bit disappointing at Doncaster last time. HARD CORE DEBT was the outsider of four and conceding weight all-round when narrowly beaten by Declamation at Beverley on Monday and, as that was his first start since joining Brian Ellison from Ireland, he can make further progress and go one better.
