Verdict

The fitting of blinkers has had the desired effect on FAME N FORTUNE, who scored over today’s trip at Lingfield recently and may well shrug off a 3lb rise. Chakrii went close over track and trip on a couple of occasions before well beaten over a mile and can figure while Poetic Legacy attempts this longer distance for the first time having placed over a mile at Brighton. Ahfad has something to prove judged on an earlier poor effort over 1m2f while Mia Vittoria makes her handicap debut for new connections having placed in maiden company in Italy.
