Verdict

Black type is considered to be an important addition to any mares’ pedigree and POSH TRISH is given a good chance to gain some more of that precious commodity for a trainer/jockey combination that are going great guns of late. The only possible drawback is a quick return to the track after she scored easily on Boxing Day. Passing Call has ground to make up on the selection from Newbury and possibly doesn’t have as much improvement in her. Indefatigable needs to improve but her Uttoxeter win was quite taking while this trip/track may prove a little too sharp for Oscar Rose. At a big price it may pay to keep an eye on Dissavril who has already scored at this level in a bumper.
