Verdict

INSANIA built on a promising debut to win with some authority at Thirsk last time and she could be capable of giving weight all round here. Karl Burke's filly may be given most to think about by Knightcap, who was only beaten a length on debut but failed to build on that at Beverley 25 days ago. Pearlwood and Don Ramiro are newcomers who are worth noting.

Verdict

It probably wasn't a particularly strong race in which INSANIA opened her account at Thirsk, but she did the job well and ought to prove capable of following up under a penalty. Knightcap's debut effort was encouraging and there were excuses at Beverley next time. She is in with an each-way shout, but Insania may have most to fear from likely-looking newcomers Don Ramiro and Great Aspirations.
