In depth

Verdict

The return to a mile will not be a problem for recent 1m2f winner Fonterutoli but a 6lb penalty could be. Skidby Mill failed to cope with a 4lb rise at Kempton for winning here in November and has an apprentice's allowance to help her out today, but Olivers Mount has been raised further in the weights for finishing second at Kempton on his latest start. One Last Dream is one to consider but a speculative vote goes to CATARIA GIRL, expected to improve on her recent comeback effort as she makes her handicap debut.
