Verdict

It was fast ground on both occasions THE DUCKING STOOL scored at Yarmouth and she still looks to be improving. Julia Feilden's mare is just preferred to Laconicos, who goes well for an amateur and went close at Newmarket last time. James Pollard has won in this company before but today's fast ground is a worry for him, though recent Polytrack winner Officer In Command could get involved. Flag Of Glory was placed under today's amateur at Pontefract last month and El Libertador would be thereabouts if reproducing his second at Folkestone in June.
