Verdict

LIFE AND TIMES showed little on the Turf last season after a promising debut and finished tailed off on heavy going here in October. He reappeared to score at Wolverhampton and a 5lb rise didn't prevent a spectacular success back there on Saturday. He has a 6lb penalty to carry but will go up much more than that when reassessed. Ishikawa has won five times on the Flat but only once on Turf and isn't badly treated taking Robbie Fitzpatrick's claim into account while Mixed Message, a winner over hurdles in October, will be better for her run at Southwell last month. Lord Franklin and Surround Sound are both capable of winning races this season and Kyllachy Star has dropped to a tempting mark.
