Verdict

Connections can't be blamed for trying to strike while the iron is hot with SMOKEY GEORGE. Kim Bailey's string continues in fine form and his six-year-old only carries a 7lb penalty for a 15-length win over 2m on heavy ground at Uttoxeter last Friday. He's preferred to Earl Of Thomond, though the latter may find this trip more to his liking after fading into fifth over 3m2f at Plumpton last time. Apache Chant has been keeping better company than this and could play a part, but Be My Light has looked very one-paced in her five runs to date over timber.
