Verdict

DANZIGER has done nothing but improve for David Evans this year and scored on her handicap debut at Kempton last week with Charming well beaten. There looks more to come and she can defy a penalty. Novabridge has a bit to find with the selection on a line through Charming while Desert Strike finished just ahead of Above The Stars last time and the latter found Love You Louis too good in a plating race here before that. Dreams Of Glory has a shout with a 7lb claimer on board but hasn't raced since October.
