Verdict

SHACKLESON made a pleasing start to his racing career when third over 1m here and, with normal improvement expected, he looks sure to go close. Middle Of Nowhere had three of these behind when third in a similar course event last month and he should give another good account, while Knockholt is worth a market check at least ahead of his debut.

TAMARIU made a promising start to his racing career when a neck second over this track and trip and normal improvement will make her tough to beat. C C's Freedom was only beaten half a length last time and she is likely to be in the shake-up again, while Queenofthekingdom will appreciate the drop in class.

Verdict

TOLSTOY looks to be improving all the time and won a shade cosily over 1m here latest. He is fancied to follow up while Indy Forest and Summer Spice, who are very closely matched on their recent 1m clash, could be left to fight out minor honours. The latter could reverse form over this longer trip.

Verdict

KACY LAUREN wasn't beaten far when third over track and trip when last sighted and wouldn't need to find much improvement in order to score. Skradin and Tearless are both capable of playing supporting roles.
