Verdict

All of these won their latest starts with Shamrokh landing a maiden by five lengths at Newcastle. The runner-up went on to finish a couple of lengths behind Poetic Force in a handicap so the top weight looks to have every chance. Spinwheel is upped a grade off a 5lb higher mark as she bids for a treble so CYRUS DALLIN, who made a winning start at Lingfield, is preferred. The latter beat a couple of subsequent winners on that occasion and Bill Muir’s charge looks sure to go close on his handicap debut on that form.
