Verdict

Itsthursdayalready is back on a winning mark and it showed with a better effort at Southwell last week, while Super Frank also ran his best race for a while when a close-up third at Lingfield last time. First Class won a lesser event over C&D last month and could figure along with recent Wolverhampton runner-up Tamino. The evergreen Almaty Express will most likely take advantage of his drop down the weights soon but a speculative vote today goes to QUEEN OF HEAVEN, who may be capable of better dropping back in trip for her handicap debut.
