Verdict

A number of these are returning from a break with Pampanito having been absent since January last year and Quantique having her first run since 2009. Duchess Theatre was very disappointing at Southwell earlier this month but Solo Jugadores was third at Sedgefield and blinkers replace a visor here. RAVI RIVER has suddenly found a bit of form and, after a second on the Flat at Carlisle, won at the 15th time of asking over timber at Cartmel last month. He's 11lb higher here but Kieron Edgar takes off 7lb and a follow-up looks a distinct possibility.
