In depth

Verdict

None of these inspire confidence though STRIKEMASTER scored over C&D at this time last year and drops down a grade here. It could be his turn today. Sweet Fairnando opened her account over 1m6f at Redcar last time though she's been raised 8lb for that success while Hoar Frost went close at Wolverhampton recently and Geanie Mac won a seller over today's trip at Catterick last month. Petella is getting no closer despite slipping down the weights but this looks easier than her recent tasks.
