Verdict

Twice As Likely has been steadily improving over 5f and should figure if lasting home over this extra distance. The Blue Bower finished in front of Lethal Talent when fourth at Chelmsford on her debut and could be thereabouts while Gert Lush ran into early trouble over the minimum trip at Bath but finished strongly and this longer trip should suit. But William Haggas introduces PRETTY PICKLE, a half-sister to a couple of speedy 5f winners, and she gets the vote to make a winning start in this company.
