    Verdict

    Almargo made a winning return at Kempton earlier this month and should go well on his handicap debut. Monashka Bay also goes handicapping for the first time after scoring over track and trip and makes more appeal than the more exposed types. Flashy Queen and Robynelle are also maiden winners but both are having their first start of the year so another chance goes to NATIONAL SERVICE. The latter failed to land the odds on the Fibresand at Southwell last time but had gone close here before that and gets the vote to prove his latest running all wrong.
