Verdict

JUBILOSO is by Shamardal out of a dual Listed winner so it was no surprise when she made a winning debut at Chelmsford last month. The Stoute filly was very impressive that day and the switch to Turf shouldn’t be a problem. Penrhos was an eye-catcher here in September and could be a decent prospect while Falsehood and Puerto Banus are newcomers to note. After John was easy to back when third at Salisbury so improvement should be forthcoming, though his yard is struggling for winners. Island Glen won a novice auction event at Newcastle in November but had been well beaten here on debut.
