Verdict

LIVING THE LIFE is a winner without a penalty having landed an apprentices race at Leicester during the week by six lengths. Jamie Osborne's charge can follow-up at the main expense of Greensward, who won a claimer over track and trip last week. The Great Gabrial came up short off today's mark here having scored at Chepstow before that although he did finish ahead of One Way Or Another, while course and distance winner Nordikhab is another who failed to cope with a raise in the weights last time.
