Verdict

It probably doesn't bode well for Group Leader that he was readily outpaced over this trip at Fakenham on New Year's Day. Flowerbud is impossible to predict and was tailed off at Folkestone last time having finished second to Advisor at Hereford earlier. Westlin' Winds is probably the form pick on his defeat of The Strawberry One at Market Rasen last summer and drops down several grades here. However, he ran a couple of shockers last month so we're taking him on with AMERICAN CRICKET. The latter still hadn't been shaken off when falling in a claimer at Southwell in November and, given plenty of time to recover by Evan Williams, could easily bounce back here.
