In depth

Verdict

Never To Be won a maiden contest at Lingfield in August and is preferred to the other handicap debutantes Nova Champ, Pretty Flamingo and Alquimia. Maid In Rio picked up a seller on her latest start while Gender Agenda and Zeshov were both well beaten on their handicap debuts. Thewandaofu may figure dropped in class, but BLACK CAESAR won a shade cosily in soft ground at Newbury last month and the Hannon colt makes most appeal stepping up in trip despite carrying top weight.
