Verdict

Rub Of The Relic scored at Southwell last time but 33 starts on this surface without a win doesn't boost confidence and a chance is taken on WOTEVA. She ran well for third in testing ground at Nottingham last time and is preferred to recent Thirsk winner It's A Mans World. Jupiter Fidius went close at this track last month and can be forgiven a recent poor run on the Fibresand while Edas is back on a winning mark if fully primed for his return to action.
