    Verdict

    This looks the stronger of the two divisions as a number have already shown some promise. Beer Goggles is fancied to confirm Carlisle running with Bollin Ace and has been knocking on the door. Australasia kept on well for pressure at Newcastle on his debut while Ca Le Ferra has been placed in his last two at Musselbrugh and is gradually getting there. TEN TREES stepped up markedly on her first run when third at Catterick. The fourth only found one too good at Sedgefield last week and Alan Swinbank's mare looks the one to beat this time.
