Verdict

A debut winner at Wincanton a year ago, TEA FOR TWO finished runner-up in a Newbury Listed race in February then occupied the same position there last month where the front pair finished well clear. He should have too much pace for these despite his penalty. Dancing Shadow has been placed here and at Kempton and should have some improvement in him while the three four-year-olds at the bottom of the card will all improve for their debuts but have plenty to find. Warren Greatrex has a good record in these races so Berwick Bassett is one to keep an eye on for the future.
