Verdict

Terra Bleu makes a quick reappearance having finished runner-up at Plumpton on Monday. He should be in the firing-line again but was well behind RASH MOMENT over C&D last month. The latter finished a close-up second on that occasion and can go one better today racing off the same mark. Bonoman posted an improved effort at Chepstow recently and the handicapper has given him a chance dropping him 2lb for this but it's hard to make a serious case for any of the remainder.
