Verdict

Aaron Lad was well backed on debut for this stable 18 days ago but his bid didn't get beyond the second obstacles, he must get respect again, especially if the money arrives. OXWICH BAY has already placed four times from four starts over timber and, while he perhaps didn't enjoy the Cheltenham hill latest, he was also running into an unpenalised winner in taking second spot. This could be his turn. Savoy Court ran well in a C&D maiden in the spring and is also noteworthy on his return with Johnson booked. Fiscal Space and the long absent Carole's Vigilante should be monitored in the betting.
