Verdict

TO CATCH A THIEF continued his theme of race-by-race progress on the back of 5 months off/being gelded when readily accounting for a next-time-out winner at Wolverhampton last month and, with the prospect of more to come now handicapping, he looks to hold serious claims of following up. Felix, Zozimus and Onesmoothoperator head up the dangers.
