In depth

Verdict

Sir Boss finished ahead of Brunston, Honest Deal and Jeer when successful here on Boxing Day but had less than a length to spare over STANLEY RIGBY when following up over C&D on New Year's Day. On 5lb better terms, you would expect Richard Fahey's charge to turn the table today and he gets the vote ahead of the hat-trick-seeking Cool Sky and Reflect, who was beaten three lengths by Illustrious Forest here off this mark a week ago. Tingle In The Tale is only a couple of pounds higher than when winning over this trip at Lingfield before Christmas but this will be his first run on this track.
