Verdict

Gold Futures won his handicap debut at Market Rasen and is upped a grade for this while Lord Brendy won his maiden over track and trip last month. Teo Vivo landed a novices event at Perth and Yourholidayisover has been raised 7lb for scoring at Carlisle. But the speculative vote in an open contest goes to TRUST THOMAS, who beat stablemate Granaruid in what looked a more competitive contest at Hexham last time and is only 3lb higher today.
