Verdict

Sophie Ralston steered ESSAKA to a four length victory over track and trip earlier this week and a 4lb penalty may not be enough to anchor him in this. Olaudah was narrowly beaten at Chelmsford recently while Who Told Jo Jo beat Holdenhurst at the track last month and the latter finished runner-up once again at Thirsk last time. Pocket Warrior beat several of these including Spirit Of Ishy over track and trip in May while Silvestre De Sousa’s presence takes the eye on Storm Melody. Mrs Todd is the least exposed and could go well on her handicap debut.
