Verdict

HEADLAND won in excellent style on his nursery debut over C&D last week, and is likely to prove difficult to beat once again as he is well treated running under a 6lb penalty. The son of Harbour Watch also has Jason Watson's valuable 3lb claim to assist, and he can prove too strong for the likes of John Betjeman, who has performed consistently throughout his career so far, and Ghost Queen, who will be suited by a return to 7f having not appeared to get home over a mile at Chelmsford.

Verdict

GHOST QUEEN showed improved form making nursery bow when runner-up ay Chelmsford last week, beating the rest comfortably, and has obvious claims off the same mark. Recent C&D winner Headland is feared most ahead of potential-improver Sufficient.
