Verdict

Like the earlier maiden on the card this will be a race full of interest and is quite a deep race of its type. Kateson is the obvious one to look at given how well she ran in bumpers last year and she has already shown that she acts on this course. It will be fascinating to see what the market makes of some of these not least the seemingly fragile Nicholls runner Casko D’Airy and Manvers House from one of the smaller stables in the race. Tossapenny, Shamilan and Samburu Shujaa are all respected but DRUMLEE WATAR on his debut after being bought for £65,000 may be good enough to take this from a yard whose horses all appear to be running well.
