Verdict

Sula Island has faced some stiff tasks since making a winning start over hurdles at Market Rasen and is back in the right grade but IT’S O KAY is improving and, after reversing Newbury running with Ceara Be last time at Leicester, may do the same here to Alan King’s novice. A Little Chaos will qualify for handicaps after this but Briery Bunny, Splash The Cash and Mabela probably have scope with the latter having undergone wind surgery since last seen.
