Verdict

MICHEAL'S NOOK never threatened over 6f in an amateurs' race on Monday but had scored over C&D before that. He still carries a penalty for last week's victory but should confirm running with Vale Of Lingfield and Teen Ager and gets the nod. The latter had previously beaten Cut The Cackle and Royal Acclamation here and can figure again while the disappointing Fleetwoodsands and Miakora may finish a bit closer dropping down to this level for the first time.
