Verdict

A low grade handicap but two of these are chasing hat-tricks with Croeso Mawr particularly interesting as her two recent wins have both been over C&D on soft ground. She beat AUTUMN FIRE by more than two lengths in the first of those but Andrew Balding's three-year-old is now 10lb better off and fancied to have his revenge. Lightly-raced, he can also get the better of Beverley and Wolverhampton scorer Meglio Ancora but Camrock Star looks a danger as she beat Croeso Mawr at Ffos Las on her latest start and is 4lb better off. Authoritarian only scrambled home at Bath last month, however, while Billion Dollar Kid may need further help from the handicapper.
