In depth

Verdict

Proud Times is high enough in the weights now but never seems to run a bad race. Valid Point gave supporters of favourite Headly's Bridge a few anxious moments at Towcester but tends to run his best race at that track. Roll The Dice will strip fitter for his run at Wincanton but TOLKEINS TANGO has the going in his favour again and, if settling better than he did at Chepstow last time, can get back to winning ways today with neither Special Account nor Tony Dinozzo impressing lately.
