This looks a modest heat and the lightly-raced PEACE ACCORD (NAP) is taken to follow up his victory on the Tapeta at Wolverhampton 10 days ago. He has a penalty to carry but that was his first run for a shrewd handler and he was well backed. Red Explorer was third at Bath on Wednesday when Arch walker was unplaced while Divertimenti and Lord Buffhead are also turned out again quickly. Red Shadow has gone close the last twice but continues to creep up the weights. Abraham Monro appeared to show improved form last time at Redcar but still has something to find with Ad Vitam on that effort. See Vermont has now had 22 starts and isn't really getting any closer.
