Verdict

The nursery season is settling down and it will be interesting to see if Ambyfaeirvine can deliver back-to-back juvenile handicap wins. The Furtado inmate scored comfortably at Pontefract with LEXINGTON QUEST (NAP) back in fourth but there are reasons for feeling positions can be reversed here. The Hannon charge receives a nice pull at the weights, didn't receive the best of luck in running that day and talented Seamus Cronin takes 5lb off his back. Champagne Supernova has disappointed hitherto but still has topweight to deal with and maybe a gelding operation will generate improvement. Ebony Adams appeals as a possible improver on this handicap debut.
