Verdict

Course regular Royal Duchess ended a long losing run when scoring over track and trip and is only 2lb higher. EPONA (NAP) struggled dropped back to the minimum trip at Newcastle last time but had earlier run well over today’s trip at Carlisle in Class 4 company. 4lb lower today, Keith Dalgleish’s filly should go close in this lowly grade. Annexation travels up from Newmarket to make his handicap debut while Prince of Time went close over 6f at Carlisle recently but has done all his winning on the all-weather so far. Michael Dods’ has sent out the last two winners and Epaulini is another to note.
