Verdict

Tenbury Wells was beaten off today’s mark when last in action though is open to improvement this year having been gelded. End Result ended last season with a victory at Newbury but is 6lb higher on her reappearance and WAIT FOREVER has the more recent form. The latter has tumbled down the weights since arriving from Italy in 2019 and Marco Botti’s charge looks capable of scoring off his current mark on last month’s second at Doncaster. Master The Stars is unexposed on Turf and is another with a shout while a tongue-tie is added to Alpine Mistral’s headgear and Sandyman debuts for a new yard.
