Verdict

TONI’S A STAR failed to see out the 6f at Wolverhampton last time but had landed a double at the same track over today’s minimum trip before that - she gets another chance in this. Sir Walter left his previous form behind when going close at Southwell last week and stablemate Spirit Power has slipped down the weights since joining Eric Alston in November. Knockout Blow’s recent third at Lingfield came over 6f but Dandilion is not badly treated and has undergone wind surgery since last seen in action in September.
