Verdict

On the evidence of what we have seen so far, it appears that you need to be taking a position on the stands side, and with that, it may pay to stick with those drawn middle to high. GROVE FERRY might need a bit of luck in running but he very much caught the eye when third on his reappearance run at Lingfield. A step up to a mile should suit, and he can go close. Finest Sound looked a different horse when scorching home at Haydock last week and has chances from a potentially good draw. Class dropper Starcat deserves consideration, and Great Ambassador, from what looks a good draw, has potential for better.
  1. Grove Ferry
