Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

Following a winning handicap debut, COOLNACRITTA looked in control before hanging late and losing his lead at Uttoxeter 42 days ago. Back in Ireland, having moved stables again, he makes most appeal in a race where the majority have something to prove. Miss Arccol and Good Reception are lightly raced and have some potential, so they strike as the most feasible dangers.
