In depth

Verdict

It will be interesting to see if there is any money for winning pointer Momella but she’ll need to be useful to get the better of the fast-improving BRILLARE MOMENTO, who is likely to be a short price after following up a first win at Southwell with victory in a Listed contest at Cheltenham. Flighty Filia ran a couple of decent races at Exeter last season so could have each-way claims but the others will all need to improve markedly on what they’ve shown so far.
