Verdict

OCASIO CORTEZ opened her account with a convincing success over the minimum trip on the Turf course at Lingfield. She should go close again with an apprentice’s allowance in her favour given today’s opposition looks nothing out of the ordinary. Whispering Leaves finished closer at Salisbury last time without threatening but Hashtagmetoo and Hollywood Waltz are likely to improve, though will need to judged on modest debut efforts. Carmel makes little appeal on breeding though represents a yard doing well with its two-year-old runners while Special Secret is another newcomer to note.
