Verdict

Regal One is a hard ride and makes little appeal under top weight. Ned The Post is making progress but might benefit from some leniency from the handicapper. There seems little point in opposing ROGUE DANCER in his current mood as he skated up at Uttoxeter on similar ground last month and clearly gets on well with Trevor Whelan. Minellaforlunch took a backward step at Worcester in May and might just need this.
