Verdict

Princess Florence finally opened her account when successful over track and trip last week but makes less appeal carrying 6lb extra and it could be the turn of TARRZAN today. A recent second over course and distance suggests John Gallagher’s charge has fallen far enough down the weights to get his head back in front and he can confirm latest running with So Claire. Alyx Vance and River Dawn posted better efforts over 6f on their respective handicap debuts though have plenty to prove over today’s trip on the evidence of previous attempts.
