Verdict

A winner at York in May, WEDDING DATE (NAP) took another step forward when landing a Class 2 sprint at Newmarket last month. Richard Hannon’s filly can go in again with a similar effort. Free Love finished behind the selection at York but had earlier beaten Pink Iceburg and Dark Shadow at Nottingham. The latter went on to record a double including a course and distance success while Pass The Gin drops back down in trip though her only previous win came over 6f. Jungle Inthebungle has been placed in plating company recently but will struggle in this grade.
