Verdict

Many of these can be expected to do better now moved into handicap company with the likes of Bella Ferrari, Montana Dawn and Jane Rose examples to take note of here. MONTANA DAWN makes greatest appeal of the trio in the hope that she will repeat the strength of her seasonal reappearance when a good Doncaster third. We need to forgive her a relative disappointment subsequently but the chance is worth taking. Recent Yarmouth winner Edge Of The World still looks on a decent mark having been raised 5lb for that success and should feature at the business end, whilst Episcia and Sosian have solid claims on their respective juvenile form but both have absences to overcome as they make seasonal reappearances.
