Verdict

VINO'S CHOICE ran an excellent race over course and distance on the back of a very long break in early February and a repeat of that effort may see him being difficult to get the better of. His performance that day was similar to his previous effort back in 2018 (also at this track). Made For You is a consistent sort who will be ready to take advantage if the selection fails to run up to his best and will be assisted by Richard Johnson who rode him last year at Stratford. If the first-time cheekpieces have an effect on Missesgeejay then it may pay to stay the right side of her as she is capable of winning from this handicap mark based on the best of her form
