Verdict

Noble Citizen had dropped to his lowest mark for a very long time when scoring over the course and distance under George Buckell last week and as that was an apprentices' race he escapes without a penalty. He looks certain to go well again though TATTING, who was beaten around three lengths, can take his revenge. Chris Dwyer's charge had completed a double over track and trip going into the race and didn't enjoy the best of runs. The Lock Master ran well to finish runner-up in a better class event a couple of weeks ago but had finished almost six lengths behind the selection last month. Raging Bear is also held but Rebellious Guest began last season on a mark of 97 and raced in some top handicaps so he could well be thrown in on his all-weather debut.
