Verdict

None of these inspire confidence and despite placing here last time, Baby Gal has still only won once in 30 attempts. Swiss Cross is usually thereabouts at this level and Brockey Rise scored off a higher mark at Wolverhampton in October but Herringswell recorded his only success so far on the Turf. BLACK TRUFFLE struggled back over 6f last time but had earlier finished a decent third over today’s trip at Kempton and gets a token vote to end a long losing run on that form in something of a lottery.
