Verdict

Winning point-to-pointer Toowoomba makes his handicap debut from a lowly mark and has performed well enough to be considered. KILFLORA doesn't win very often but produced an excellent performance at Market Rasen and with just 2lb extra to contend with is taken to follow-up. Kayfton Pete is another who doesn't win often but he ran his best race for some time at Fakenham last month. Santo Thomas has had just two runs since scoring at Towcester in May and should be ready to do his best in conditions that will suit.
