Verdict

WATERLOO DOCK went close in similar company on a couple of occasions last month and it could be his turn today. Mick Quinn's charge is preferred to Comadoir, who ran well over 7f here in December and should be thereabouts again in this. Johnny Splash has been holding his form well over the minimum trip and Imjin River has been in better form at Wolverhampton recently but Pharoh Jake looks to be in the handicapper's grip now after winning three times in December. Diamond Vine has tumbled down the weights but has yet to show any improvement for it.
