    Verdict

    My Boy Sepoy and Sudona ended last season with victories over today’s trip at Bath and Yarmouth respectively thought the latter returns to action raised 9lb. A dual winner over hurdles, First Quest was winning his first handicap on the Flat when scoring at Windsor recently and should go well again despite a 4lb rise but NARJES (NAP) is preferred. Laura Mongan’s consistent mare won twice over 1m2f on the Polytrack here over the winter and can effectively race off a lower mark than when last successful if Sophie Ralston’s allowance is taken into account. She Believes slips further down the weights and debuts over the distance while King Of The Sand was still well beaten when third on the all-weather here earlier.
