ASSESSMENT is penalised for winning at Yarmouth on his debut but this doesn’t look a strong race and Sir Michael Stoute’s colt can go in again. Stablemate Glory Nights needs to improve to figure while Saeed bin Suroor also runs two with Big Meeting returning to action in first-time cheekpieces and Valley Mist making her debut. Mzahem finished closer on his debut at Lingfield and may prove best of the rest back on the all-weather.
