In depth

Verdict

Mark Johnston saddles MARSHLAND and Shebebi with the former taken to come out best and complete a quick double. He reappeared after almost a year off to score easily at Southwell despite looking very green and, with that under his belt, can make all here. Delores Rocket won three times in her first campaign though all victories came on ground with some give and Hiddon Coin, who was outclassed in the Greenham on Saturday, seems best on an artificial surface. Asgardella made a winning start at Ayr in August and competed in much better company in her next three starts so she looks a big threat.
