Verdict

Uriah Heep has the ability to figure in a race like this if fully wound-up. Focail Maith's confidence will have been boosted by his win at Huntingdon and Ally Stirling is one of the more experienced amateurs riding in this. Dont Take Me Alive and Great Link are others to consider while Purple 'n Gold was more like his old self at Ludlow last time and is only a pound higher. WHILE YOU WAIT showed himself to be better than a plater when winning a novices' handicap by nine lengths at Plumpton. This quicker going won't be a problem and another victory may be on the cards under Hayley Moore.
