Verdict

It would be no surprise to see Clear Spring bounce back to form dropping down a grade and Alpha Delta Whisky is not out of this on his best efforts on the Polytrack. LANGLEY VALE arrives in better form than both, however, having gone close over a shorter trip here last time on the back of a 6f win at Lingfield. Roger Teal's charge gets the nod with Dark Lane looking high enough in the weights now and Diamond Vine taking on better opposition. Bint Alzain has claims off her current mark on only her second start on Turf.
