Verdict

Neither of the newcomers would need to be anything special to make a winning start. However, WHALEWEIGH STATION has been competing at a much higher level and, though disappointing since last season's form in Group company, he won't get many better opportunities. Eleusis couldn't get to Camanche Grey at Warwick and the winner has been beaten in a seller so Normanna looks the main threat. She hasn't raced since a beaten favourite at Kempton in December which could be a problem, but if ready for this should give the selection a race.
