Verdict

Master Of The Sea makes a swift reappearance after winning at Hereford on Wednesday and, despite a penalty, is still at the opposite end of the handicap to Wetherby runner-up Beeves and Folkestone scorer Explained. Catch The Fire always sees to find at least one too good while Mirific and Powerful Ambition both disappointed last time and Bathwick Brave fell at Newbury when trying to follow up a win at Uttoxeter. Saints And Sinners may need this so we'll take a chance on the three-year-old KEALSHORE AGAIN. He may not have beaten much at Hexham but was still impressive and the handicapper hasn't had much to work with.
