In depth

Verdict

Renoyr is up 10lb for a five-length victory at Doncaster but won with plenty to spare and is preferred to Chicklemix, who had Embsay Crag behind over track and trip on her latest start. Billy Twyford and Thunder Sheik have claims on their latest placed efforts but Rupert Bear's winning run came to end off today's mark at Kelso last time. Sam Lord only got as far as the first when unseating his rider here three weeks ago but has a shout on his earlier double at Sedgefield however an open contest can go the way of MUBROOK. He looked an improved performer on his first start since March and debut for Brian Ellison when runner-up to Brick Red at Wincanton last month and better is expected.
