Verdict

Haajes makes a quick reappearance having failed to get involved at Doncaster on Wednesday but is now 7lb higher than his latest win in June. DA'QUONDE makes more appeal as she found only the progressive Bondi Beach Boy too good at Thirsk last time with today's rival Come On Dave back in third. Bryan Smart's mare gets the nod given recent Wolverhampton winner Storm Lightning is upped in class off a higher mark today. The remainder all appear to be struggling at present though Jack My Boy has quickly dropped back down the weights after scoring at Chepstow in June.
