Verdict

ARCHIE STEVENS was claimed by current connections after winning a similar contest over 6f here three weeks ago by four lengths. If anything, he has an even easier task in this and is likely to start odds-on once again. The remainder have little to recommend them with Little China probably having the best recent form with a fifth at Brighton and even though Coconut Kisses won a seller at Thirsk last season, this should be a straightforward task for Amy Weaver's charge.
