      Verdict

      This is a very low-key opener with few having shown any worthwhile form. YOUNG CHEDDAR was no match for the odds-on Cresswell Breeze at Plumpton last time but got closer to the winner than she had at Taunton six days earlier and might be heading in the right direction. She should have no trouble confirming Plumpton running with Tambura and looks the one to beat. Innocent Girl didn't take to fences at Wetherby and may be the pick of the remainder as Clouds Of Mist is held on the form book and Solstice Dawn has got nowhere near in her 10 races to date under Rules.
