In depth

Verdict

Asian Trader bids for hat-trick after finishing ahead of Waseem Faris, Rebecca Romero and Whitecrest at Sandown last time. But Gladiatrix wasn't beaten far in third and Richard Hughes takes over the reins for this. It will be tight between those two today but POWERFUL WIND has to come into the reckoning also on the back of an easy win at Bath. The latter is up 8lb but remains on a winning mark and Ron Harris' sprinter is just preferred to West Coast Dream, who has slipped further down the weights and will be looking to take advantage soon.
