      Verdict

      Shibhan made a promising debut at Yarmouth last month and Clive Brittain's filly should not be inconvenienced by the step up to six furlongs but more solid claims are held by MIDNIGHT MARTINI, who gets the verdict with Angelina Ballerina rated the best of the rest. The selection was doing her best work late on at Beverley over the stiff five furlongs there when chasing home Mon Brav so there should be more to come over the extra furlong today and, with Tim Easterby's stable in good form, she looks worth backing to open her account. Alan McCabe introduces a daughter of Needwood Blade in Blade Of Glory and she has to be of interest first time out. Mick Channon's two-year-olds always warrant respect and his Kyllachy filly Dancing Poppy is no exception on her debut. Alan Bailey's Angelina Ballerina has been highly tried in maidens at Chester and Newmarket and latterly in the Listed Hilary Needler at Beverley on her third start and she has to be respected back in a maiden today but preference is for Midnight Martini, who is taken to give Tim Easterby another winner.
