In depth

Verdict

SHARNEY SIKE failed to cope when upped in class at Newcastle last Saturday. But he'd landed a double under today's conditional rider earlier and can return to winning ways in this lesser company. Rocking Blues has been placed on his last couple of outings without threatening the winner and Milano Magic was still beaten a distance despite finishing third at Wetherby last month. Peachey Moment is also struggling for his best but has slipped down the weights as a consequence and Blueside Boy may do better back over these fences after a poor effort at Carlisle.
