Verdict

Just Your Type wasn’t disgraced in a Grade 2 at Haydock after finishing second in a maiden at Ffos Las and this looks a good opportunity for Charlie Longsdon’s gelding to get off the mark under Rules. But APPLESOLUTELY is a worthy opponent and she has her mares’ allowance, though does carry a penalty for winning at Taunton in January. She came up against a subsequent winner at Bangor next time and was closing down her conqueror on the run-in. The remaining trio are probably relying on snookers.
