In depth

Verdict

Theatrebar was always going well and only had to be shaken up to score at Ludlow last time. He should have more to offer while Chepstow scorer Going Concern also has scope for further improvement. Bumper winner CLASSIC MOVE was a little keen on his hurdling debut at Haydock but kept on well in the closing stages after racing prominently. With that experience under his belt, he can get off the mark here as Bishops Gate was due to run yesterday at Newcastle after a lay-off. Spencer Lea hinted at ability at Ffos Las but Farasi Kubwa is making his racecourse debut.
