Few inspire any confidence but SPLASH OF VERVE won here in January and after going close again at Wolverhampton last month, looks worth sticking with in this company. Sosian was beaten only a length at Chelmsford on her penultimate start and Zarkavon wasn’t beaten far at Wolverhampton in March. Colourfield may do better on her second start after wind surgery and dropping down in class while Itsupforgrabsnow posted better efforts at the end of last season.
