Verdict

A chance is taken on KINGSMILL GIN, who appeared to get bogged down in the mud last time and there was sufficient promise in her effort at Wincanton previously to suggest that she'd be capable of winning a race of this nature. Follow That took a step in the right direction here in January and is next best ahead of Arctic Footprint, who finished nicely clear of Puzzle Cache when second at Exeter.
