Verdict

Purple has quickly been sent down the handicap route and doesn't look well weighted on her form to date. Tannery has done all of her racing at Dundalk and has definitely improved though she starts her handicap career from a high enough mark. She had a couple of lengths to spare over TAWARIYKA when both were placed in December but a 5lb pull may be enough for the latter, who holds Shabra Emperor on latest form, to turn the tables and take this. Asteroid Belt is the type to make progress this campaign but UK imports Spunky and Hartside may need their first starts for new connections.
