Verdict

Sophosc ran well again at Doncaster having won over a mile at Goodwood earlier but Rhythmic Intent’s earlier second came in soft ground and he lost all chance when hampered over track and trip a fortnight ago. Madame Tantzy was well beaten in the Fred Darling over 7f here when last in action while Just The Man ran well at Leicester last month though has yet to encounter fast going. INCREDULOUS makes her handicap debut having won a novices' event at Wolverhampton. This slightly longer trip will suit and she may prove the one to beat.
