Verdict

ZAIN TIME gets a token vote in an uninspiring sprint. She was still well beaten when runner-up in a maiden here last time but there could be more to come now handicapping. It took Frank The Barber 18 attempts to get off the mark but he was in front of Rat Catcher and Wimboldsley when scoring over track and trip last time. The latter had finished well ahead of subsequent Kempton winner Argent Touch when scoring here in September and the remainder are harder to fancy.
