In depth

Verdict

Ted's Brother looks high enough in the weights for his reappearance and Loud has been well beaten on the Polytrack either side of winning at Southwell. But Strong Man made another bold bid at Kempton last time having won at the same track earlier. SMOKETHATTHUNDERS never figured stepped up to 1m2f on his latest start but had finished a close-up third to Bowstar over today's trip before that in a higher grade contest than this. That looks stronger form than the recent placed effort of Sakash and Tim Pitt's charge gets the vote.
