In depth

Verdict

A tricky end to proceedings as Miss Tique was a promising sort a couple of years ago and Secret Edge won over 2m on the Flat in October. We may not have seen the best of Touch Back yet while Theatrebar progresses into handicap company having had just the two starts over timber. Boomtown thrives on heavy going but this might be a little too competitive for Claire Dyson's charge, who had a hard race when second at Wetherby on Tuesday. Last week's Market Rasen runner-up MURTYS DELIGHT has his ground again and can go one better at the main expense of narrow Haydock winner No No Bingo as the handicapper has taken no chances with novice Chase The Spud.
