The first handicap on the card is a competitive one with Eminent Poet sure to head the market after his win in stamina sapping conditions last time out. This could be a little different though over a shorter trip and on less testing ground and it may well be that the conditions could be his undoing. Mwaleshi usually runs a solid race around here and Ozzy Thomas if he got a soft lead again would be capable of taking this on a track that should suit such tactics. Compadre has always looked as though he could be much better than this level but his failure to settle has undermined his chances so far although a strongly run handicap may suit him far better than the novice hurdles he has been running in. Sharp Response will need respecting if he turns out again while Sensible Simpson should be watched in the market on his handicap debut. Overall though it’s AWESOME ROSIE who looks capable of taking this after her Doncaster run last time out where she travelled well and finished off the race strongly.
