Verdict

Irish import Golden Flower opened her account in a maiden over 5f here last time and there should be more to come from her now she's got her head in front. However, ARCHIE STEVENS makes more appeal as the C&D winner ended last year with a win at Lingfield. Only 3lb higher today, he's preferred to 7f maiden winner Be On The Bell as the latter has failed to figure in a couple of handicaps so far. Clear Loch is getting closer but needs another step forward on his handicap debut if he's to trouble the selection.
