Verdict

Richard Fahey has won this three times in the past nine years and is doubly represented today. Paul Hanagan takes the ride on INSIDE and the nicely-bred filly has the scope to go on to better things, beginning with this from her fair mark. Ventura Sands disappointed in her first season and will find this tough but it's very unusual to find a Mark Johnston entry at the bottom of a handicap so Vetvey is one to keep an eye on. Rapturous Applause makes his handicap debut and looks capable of better than he showed last year while Chadford ran a couple of decent races on fast ground in his first season. Plenty of these are fit from the all-weather and the consistent Crown Ridge may prove best of them after a good run at Lingfield last week.
