    Verdict

    I'm So Busy placed at Fakenham last month though the first two home have been beaten subsequently. But WORD HAS IT found only Pay The Piper too good at Sedgefield last time and the latter has won again since. Donald McCain’s charge may prove the one to side with given Miss Tara Moss drops back down in trip having finished second at Bangor and Without Conviction makes her hurdling bow after disappointing in a bumper here in December. Alqamar was a decent handicapper on the Flat for Godolphin though hasn’t raced since 2018 having switched yards.
