In depth

Verdict

Workbench was sent off favourite for his debut over a shorter trip at Newbury last month and better is expected here. Bladoun has already been placed at Newcastle and Ffos Las and should be winning soon but THE MAD ROBERTSON made a bold bid to make all on his debut at Huntingdon and may be capable of going one better here with that experience to fall back on. Tolkeins Tango is a half-brother to three winners in France so may prove the pick of the newcomers as his stable's debutants rarely arrive at the track under-prepared.
