In depth

Verdict

Winds And Waves came good over 2m6f at Huntingdon last month and Jake Greenall's claim partly reduces a 10lb rise in the weights. Ballymoat was only beaten a neck at Catterick last time and makes more appeal than disappointing stablemate Koultas King while Tim Easterby also runs two with Ballymartin King preferred to Vintage Times. Combustible Kate and Spanish Fork are starting to look exposed but there may be more to come from Racey Lacey and Gonow has shown some ability. BECKHANI looked ready for a further step up in distance when third to Big Society over 2m3f at Exeter. He gets his chance here and can make a winning debut in handicaps for an in-form team.
