    Verdict

    Kaffie is heading in the right direction, easily defying a penalty at Warwick last week. Kim Bailey's mare deserves her chance in this higher grade but THE STRAWBERRY ONE has been highly tried since returning from an autumn break and should find life easier here. As four of her five career wins have come at Towcester, she should find the uphill finish at Sandown to her liking and can reverse Kempton running with Annimation on 25lb better terms. Kells Belle and Misstree Dancer have become disappointing, while Love Of Tara needs to improve again on her Hereford win to figure.
