Verdict

QALLAAB makes a fair amount of appeal on his handicap debut for Mick Appleby after showing some promise on his first start for the yard at Chester in September. The booking of Luke Morris and a drop to 6f can help him improve. Princess Keira won at Yarmouth when last seen and is respected off a 5lb higher mark, while Roland Rocks looks best of the remainder on his third at Kempton to Busby.

Verdict

PRINCESS KEIRA had a bit up her sleeve when finally opening her account at Yarmouth in September and a 5 lb rise may not prevent her going in again. Roland Rocks is down to a good mark and took a step back in the right direction last time. Qallaab rates a likely improver now handicapping and also makes the shortlist.
