Verdict

Savant Bleu was allowed to start at surprisingly generous odds for an amateur riders' race at Wincanton last time considering he'd gone very close in a competitive handicap at Newbury previously. The handicapper may not have caught up yet and Kim Bailey's eight-year-old is a leading player in this. Galway Jack is on a hat-trick after wins at Southwell and Newcastle but taking on better opposition now. Harry The Viking was fancied for the Grimthorpe at Doncaster last time but soon beaten and was pulled up - he's become disappointing. This looks to be BALLYOLIVER's time of year, as he showed when scoring at Carlisle last month. A 6lb rise is probably fair so he gets the nod.
