Verdict

A trappy affair which features a couple of last time out winners. Pain Au Chocolat bossed his rivals when winning in a bog at Newcastle (2m4f) with rider Tony Kelly reporting afterwards that he tends to appreciate carrying a big weight against lesser rivals as opposed to being upped in class. Both Morning Royalty and Chidswell are handicapped to score, but not regular winners. Therefore, the spotlight falls upon the Alan Jones trained TIQUER to follow up his recent Newbury success from a 7lb higher mark. Wind surgery has apparently helped this veteran chaser, and he has plenty in his favour (namely trip and ground) today.
  1. Tiquer
