In depth

Verdict

Fintan won at Uttoxeter in October but finished last off today's higher mark on his latest start while George Nympton went close on his penultimate outing only to disappoint at Worcester. Captain Paulie ran well at Chepstow before a poor effort at Newbury and a chance is taken that NOZIC proves more consistent. He finished runner-up at Plumpton recently and a similar effort should see him go close. Cranky Corner won at Lingfield on his first start for a new yard and makes more appeal than Marleno.
