Verdict

This looks as competitive as the numbers would suggest with a host of runners who could progress in handicaps. Of that group TEDHAM is selected to make a winning return even though he failed to cope with a step up in grade at Aintree when last seen, a wind op could make plenty of difference. Smarty Wild has won his last three and looks a danger along with one seeking a hat-trick Liosduin Bhearna he looks a very straightforward and honest type. It may well have been job done with The Big Galloper last time but he has to be respected especially if there are positive market vibes again. Rapper comes from a yard in good form, he along with Duke Street and Breaking Waves isn’t out of this.
  1. Tedham
  2. Smarty Wild
  3. Liosduin Bhearna
