Verdict

GAMBLIN makes plenty of appeal in this claimer in that he's an unexposed quantity after just the three starts and the course scorer is clearly held in high regard at home. Ignotus should go well judged on his recent form and joins American Cougar on the shortlist.

CHEVERIE was a very impressive winner of a similar heat here in November and is backed to go in again while evidently on good terms with herself. Fellow last-time-out winners Kenlake Resort and Fields Of Gold cannot be overlooked, though.

Another select but competitive claimer for punters to solve and perhaps WILLIWAW, given he hasn't finishing outside of the first two home in his last six starts, winning three times, is the safe play. Ultraflame and Bluegrass Luck are also noted.

Verdict

HYPNOTICA appeals as the unexposed quantity in the field and, debuting for a new stable, she won't be done improving yet and has been found a good opening. Danceforthedevil and Kilrush look the main dangers.
