In depth

Verdict

Snapchat's third at Fakenham was his best effort so far but Conor O'Farrell will have to carry plenty of lead in the saddle to make up the weight. Vinnieslittle Lamb has the past form to figure but didn't run very well at Uttoxeter last time, though the headgear is dispensed with here. WALDORF SALAD has been a slow learner but looked to be getting his act together at Taunton last month. He wouldn't need much more today and gets a tentative vote ahead of Plumpton second Sweet Boy Vic and the so-far disappointing Downtown Manhattan.
