In depth

Verdict

Bollin Fiona couldn't quite catch Pierrers Bounty over the track and trip last time when Master Murphy was 5l back in third. The latter is massively better off at the weights and should have little trouble reversing the form. Amore Mio hasn't run well since his victory at Ayr in November though he's now just 2lb higher while Saddlers Mot is 8lb higher than her latest success and that was in a seller. MOOTABAR was very disappointing at Newcastle and potential punters would need to forgive that effort which came after a fine run at Catterick where he only succumbed late over a slightly longer trip. He's taken to get back on track in a moderate contest.
