Verdict

A number of chasing newcomers feature including the consistent Lord Fendale and the hat-trick seeking Wenceslaus. However, it's fair to say that this isn't the strongest of contests, so we'll take a chance on a horse at a projected bigger price. Omega Springs could fare more positively returned to a Class 4 contest, whilst the 7yo Centreofexcellence has seen his recent Ludlow effort franked by the winner Cap St Vincent. However, a speculative shout is the Evan Williams-trained SHREWD TACTICS. He ran very well on his chasing debut at Taunton in March 2017 and will almost certainly draw considerable benefit for a recent reappearance run at Ffos Las.
