Verdict

Tracy Waggott's dual C&D winner Billy Wedge is undoubtedly the form horse in a fairly modest contest. However, he faces a stiffer test from a 5lb higher mark than when winning six weeks ago, so we'll opt to look elsewhere for the each-way value. The recent Southwell winner Decision Maker must prove his stamina reserves over 7f. Meanwhile, it'll be interesting to see if the combination of wind surgery, cheekpieces and the switch to local trainer Karen McLintock can lift the fortunes of the ailing Phantasmal. However, for small stakes the suggested play is Stef Keniry's feasibly handicapped MACS BLESSINGS who should strip fitter for a recent comeback run.
