      Verdict

      Several with claims but MIRACLE WORKS beat a subsequent dual winner by a couple of lengths at Chelmsford on his first start for Bob Cowell and looks worth sticking with on that form despite a 6lb rise. A Sure Welcome is upped 4lb for winning over track and trip but was earlier beaten by Union Rose here while The Establishment’s earlier success at the track came over 6f. Amazing Grazing was narrowly beaten over course and distance last time while both Canford Bay and Nibras Again will be sharper for recent comeback runs and are not out of this either.
