In depth

Verdict

None of these two-year-olds have raced over this far but Sophar Sogood should last home on the evidence of a winning handicap debut over a mile at Southwell. Souter Johnnie is fitted with headgear after returning a winning favourite over the same distance at Kempton and both of the above have 6lb more to carry today. Moorland Spirit will need to step up on her fourth at Kempton and a chance is taken on GOOD REASON. The latter’s best effort so far came in soft going over a mile at Doncaster and the Godolphin filly is expected to improve now handicapping with Webuyanyhorse perhaps best of the rest.
