    Verdict

    SIGNE is the only one with recent winning form having landed the odds over a mile here on her racecourse debut. The Haggas filly should see out this longer trip without any problem. Perceived drops down a grade for her first start since October while Star Of Lombardy had just the one start last year and makes her handicap debut. Henpecked, who has been jumping, and Mercy Me have both looked in the handicapper's grip since winning last year and an apprentice takes over the reins on the latter.
