Verdict

Workbench was sent off a short-priced favourite at Wincanton in February but was well beaten and clearly isn't one of the stable stars at Ditcheat. The market should be monitored regarding the returning Is It Me and Spinning Waters but Shady Lane needs to improve on what he's shown so far to get involved and Aciano has also disappointed so far. JUDICIARY has been lightly-raced over hurdles but has some ability and this looks a lot less competitive than the races here was contesting last year. Tim Vaughan's gelding gets the nod, though Exeter winner Buckhorn Tom looks a big danger.
