In depth

Verdict

A low grade handicap but plenty in with a shout. Last Minute Lisa is penalised for scoring at Brighton and is worse off with Lutine Charlie who was only beaten a length. She'd earlier finished behind Benandonner when the latter was second at Bath with Carrera further back in the field. Last week's Leicester winner Botanist was ending a losing run stretching back to 2009 and that was the same year multiple Polytrack winner The Happy Hammer last scored on Turf. BOND ARTIST failed to cope in much better company at Beverley last time but beat Benandonner at Wolverhampton earlier this year and can return to winning ways in this less competitive contest.
