In depth

Verdict

TITUS BOLT stayed on to take third over track and trip last time and Jim Goldie's charge gets a token vote to land this racing off the same mark today. Arc Light finished fourth in the same race and also has claims while Ferryview Place won at Dundalk when trained in Ireland and has been placed on the Polytrack in both starts for Ian Williams. Croftamie has slid down the handicap and showed a bit more at Redcar last time and Mr Snoozy has place claims on his seasonal debut.
