Verdict

A 2lb rise for his Ffos Las second over this sort of trip doesn't make things impossible for CORNELIUS SOCKS in his attempt to get off the mark at the third time of asking in a handicap. Jimmy Bell has run well both starts after a layoff and gets the champion jockey's assistance, which bodes well, while last year's runner-up Steel Express and course regular Mountain Of Mourne are others with claims.
  1. Cornelius Socks
  2. Jimmy Bell
  3. Steel Express
