Verdict

A big field, but most of these are out of form. However, ANNDARROW improved for the step up in trip at Taunton last time out, and though she's 5lb higher here she holds obvious claims on ground that should suit and with further improvement possible. She can see off Sauvignon, who looked the likeliest winner at Southwell last time when falling two out, while Waikiki Waves could show a better level of form here.
