Verdict

Wicked Sea went close over 7f here during the week but had earlier been well beaten behind runner-up ZAPATEADO over a mile at Wolverhampton. The latter looks to have every chance of confirming superiority and getting her head in front given the distinctly modest form of the rest of today’s opposition. Unbridled Spirit has managed a third in heavy going and Sister Celine may have improved since last season as she returns to action but the remainder are hard to recommend.
