Top amateur Simon Walker could add another winner to his CV with CLUMBER PLACE given the verdict. Pulled out of an engagement earlier in the week the filly will have to improve on her score last time but she proved very game and maybe hard to pass. King Columbo has a clear chance based on his near miss off this mark last time while Red Dagger and Human League are both coming here off wins and need respecting. Powerful Pierre is another that was narrowly denied off his current rating and should go well but Clumber Place has more in her favour.
