Verdict

WHATDOIDOWITHTHAT goes well here and appears to have been found a good opportunity to continue in the same vein. Delightfully and Rivington Park are expected to make this a stern test, while Glen Rouge may be the leader of Nicky Richards' triumvirate of acceptors. With only one win between them, it is safe to say you are unlikely to be knocked down in the rush to side with the Richards team on this occasion, though. Rivington Park deserves a change of fortune and it will be interesting to see how the market reacts to his chances. Ostensibly the gelding is not bred to be a stayer but, he has lacked a change of gear over the minimum trip; so it appears to be a logical choice to try him over further. Delightfully was a shade disappointing last time out and has a bit to prove. However, she had previously shown progressive form, so it may just have been an off day. Softening of the ground will help her cause. However, even under top weight Whatdoidowiththat has a live chance in this company. Sue Smith's gelding arrives back at Hexham in good heart and as, he is already a dual course winner; his proven ability to cope with the harsh nature of this course is a big positive when assessing his chance.
