Verdict

Reaction Time showed real potential on debut when fourth in a fair Sandown maiden. However, that run came over a year ago and remains the only time he's set foot on the track in three seasons. The fact connections are persevering with the son of Dubawi suggests potential remains and this is not too demanding a race. However, EVA MARIA built on a promising debut at Thirsk when scoring with ease on a return visit to the Yorkshire track in a manner suggesting she has plenty more to offer. This looks to be her trip and she's preferred. Storting is looking exposed but rates a fair each-way play.
