Verdict

This looks something of a lottery with a handful of unexposed three-year-olds all capable of going close. Jabalaly returned a losing favourite over 7f at Doncaster and Eligible also steps up in trip after running well at Newbury. Eddie Cochran and Forbidden Dance were both placed over a mile in novice company last time with the former preferred but a tentative vote goes the way of MOTAWAJ. The latter was having his first start since October when third at Nottingham on his handicap debut and Roger Varian’s charge should be sharper today. 7f winner Pacificadora steps down in distance for her first start in a handicap and may prove best of the rest.
