Verdict

Sunhill Lad could feasibly step up on his latest effort over 1m6f at Redcar now cutting back in trip and fitted with first-time cheekpieces, though narrow preference is for KITTY'S COVE, who is a potential improver off a mark of 48 on her handicap debut. Tim Easterby's High Chaparral filly is closely related to 1m4f winner Forced Family Fun. A stiffer test of stamina may also suit Handsome Bob, who steps up beyond 1m2f for the first time.

Verdict

All of these are yet to win a race and SUNHILL LAD could be the one to open his account as he's left the impression he might be building up to a bigger effort in 2 runs back on turf after 4 months off. Kitty's Cove starts out in handicaps in a very winnable event and might yet take a step forward.
