Verdict

Simoon has enjoyed success in both of his spells with Andrew Balding, and is clearly loving his life back at Kingsclere. There's every chance that he can land the hat-trick following wins at Chelmsford (1m) and Windsor (1m2f), with some of today's opposition untested over this 1m2f trip. However, in receipt of 12lb (if factoring in Jamie Gormley's 3lb claim), there's potentially some value to be sought with the upped in grade Hamilton scorer MEARING. Although winning over the extended mile at that Lanarkshire track (Class 5), he does also sport previous Class 4 C&D winning form (on soft).
