Verdict

WISTERIA LANE should be good enough to land this modest novice event with both Blossom King and Tarvini posing as the likely dangers. The selection caught the eye after finishing third to Peaceful Means at Worcester last time out. He is still only lightly raced so with further improvement still to come he should not be far away come the business end of the race. Blossom King is another lightly raced horse who has shown enough to warrant respect so any market moves should be noted. Tarvini sports cheek pieces for the first time having shown very little for Jonjo O'Neill. He was good enough to win a maiden for John Ox last September so he should not be totally ignored. Wisteria Lane is the form horse in the race and takes preference.
