Verdict

CARAMELITA has gone close in heavy ground the last twice and John Jenkins' C&D winner is a less than confident selection to go one better dropping down a level. Dancing Welcome is not out of this with an apprentice's 7lb claim helping his cause and Mary's Pet was only beaten a head in similar company at Chepstow last time. It's only a matter of time before Colourbearer takes advantage of a falling handicap mark and the same comment applies to Smoky Cloud.
