Verdict

Nifty Kier landed a poor handicap at Bath over a mile but couldn't replicate that run over this trip at Brighton. Look Here's Al scored at Chepstow in June before finding Beverley's stiff finish too much for him last month but Green Zone signalled an imminent victory was near at hand at Newcastle last week after dropping to his lowest mark for over a year. KANTARA CASTLE has also dropped to a mark he looks capable of winning from with his best recent form coming when just beaten over this track and trip in May. He's given the nod as though Little Choosey ran well here last month she's never raced beyond a mile.
