Verdict

DON'T TELL ANNIE has acquitted herself well in better company than this since winning her debut at Pontefract. She's preferred to another Pontefract winner in Firgrove Bridge, who disappointed last time, and Tim Easterby's filly gets the nod. The newcomer Mighty Warrior is a half-brother to four winners so any strong support for him in the betting could prove significant but Shamkhani is easily overlooked.
