In depth

Verdict

This is little better than a seller so The Society Man, who won at that level at Market Rasen on Boxing Day, must be worth a second look with Gerard Galligan taking off 10lb. But this should be within the capabilities of LAUBERHORN, who has his sights lowered and should appreciate the return to a longer trip after three runs over 2m. Marleno also has half a chance while Shropshirelass could make her presence felt for Zoe and Gemma Gracey-Davidson but this is not a race on which to risk the mortgage.
