Verdict

BEHINDTHELINES has a strong opportunity to shed the maiden tag at the third time of asking for Lucinda Russell. He had Arctic Vodka and Hangard well beaten when vainly chasing home the likeable Sweet As Candy at Ayr in January (2m5f heavy), and he should take all of the beating in a modest race. Western Honour looks the chief threat. He didn't stay with Paul Nicholls for too long after costing £120,000, but he's taken to make another step forward on his second start for Jimmy Moffatt after finishing a pleasing fourth at Kelso last month (runner up won a decent handicap at Sandown on Saturday).
