Verdict

Bureaucrat would have picked up and carried most of these in his heyday but doesn't stand much racing nowadays and isn't the force of old. Andy Vic gets good ground for the first time since pulling off a shock victory under Joanne Brown at Catterick in February. He's not as well handicapped now but seems in reasonable form and another win isn't out of the question getting weight from largely disappointing rivals. But CHARLIE WINGNUT could prove a bit better than he's shown so far and appeared to appreciate the longer trip at Ascot last time. He gets the nod though Around A Pound did beat a subsequent winner over C&D on soft ground last month and Natural Spring ran her best race so far at Wincanton four weeks ago.
