Verdict

There are quite a few in this that look as though they will need some time and it may pay to take a positive view of the form that THE VOCALIST showed on her hurdles debut at Fontwell which has already received a boost. Nigel Twiston-Davies saddles and interesting pair in Oh Michelle and Costante Via both of whom are expected to build on the promise they showed in bumpers. Dory may prove to be the biggest danger though with this track looking likely to suit better than the sharp turns of Fakenham last time out. Of those at likely larger prices Frozen Motion and Mythical Legend are a pair that make some appeal who should be watched in the market.
  1. The Vocalist
