Verdict

Catch That is likely to do a lot better now tackling handicaps and should be monitored closely in the betting. A market move for Terfel's Toscar would also be significant on his return from injury while Benny's Mist hinted at ability last season. Himayna has had plenty of chances, however, and was pulled up at Southwell last Wednesday. TSARINOVA wasn't disgraced in better company at Market Rasen in January and a repeat of her fourth to Veiled at Warwick a year ago would probably suffice here.
