Verdict

Several to consider in an open-looking contest. START POINT has made gradual race-by-race progress in a trio of maidens and could be ready to strike now pitched into a handicap off what looks a fair opening mark. Checkitsme arrives here in decent nick and should make her presence felt, while last week's Southwell scorer Highstakesplayer and C&D winner Karakoram are also accorded respect.
