Verdict

Little Bird made all at Doncaster and stayed on strongly when challenged so normal improvement will see her make a bold bid to follow up under a penalty. Wightman ran well at Salisbury on his debut but was well beaten on much faster ground on a return visit. Space Ace was narrowly beaten by Constanzia, who runs earlier, at Chelmsford and didn't enjoy soft ground at Carlisle next time. SWEET SIXTEEN came here for her debut and showed her inexperience when getting outpaced mid-race but stayed on again when the race was over and can make the experience count.
