Verdict

The booking of Noel Fehily for MILLICENT SILVER catches the eye. The Twiston-Davies mare came to hand around this time last season when picking up a race over a similar trip at Bangor in similar conditions. She showed signs of a return to form when fitted with a visor for the first time on her most recent start and she can take full advantage of the weight she gets from Mountainous. Conditions look ideal for Kerry Lee's veteran and his latest run offers his supporters hope that he can get back to winning ways. Abracadabra Sivola has more to do than when picking up a small race last time but he could improve further still for his step up in trip. 1. Millicent Silver 2. Mountainous 3. Abracadabra Sivola
