Emerahldz made the handicapper pay for his leniency with three handicap victories and Richard Fahey's filly looks set to run another big race on a surface that holds no fears. CINNILLA looks a fascinating prospect on her first foray into handicaps and we take her to get off the mark. The daughter of Authorized was a warm favourite for a Newbury maiden last season, and while she has clearly taken time to come to hand, Ralph Beckett's filly demonstrated enough in a recent event at Salisbury to suggest herself as not devoid of ability. Sipertan hails from unfashionable connections so he's sure to be a price in spite of proven form on a softer surface. Company Secretary is chanced again over the trip having run with a degree of promise at Hamilton. Gimme Five couldn't follow up a Bath success at Chepstow though Richard Hughes sticks around for the mount.
