Verdict

CLOUDBERRY escaped a penalty for winning an apprentice race at Kempton and took advantage to score again at Sandown. He’s upped 5lb today but worth sticking with until beaten. Zzoro drops back in distance for the first time this year after placing again when second at Nottingham while Feed The Goater showed further progress to win at Chelmsford last month. Red Tea won over 7f at Newmarket on her penultimate start but was behind the selection before that while Take The Helm is not badly treated returning to the mile trip and dropping down in class.
