Verdict

This looks a tricky puzzle to solve as most have a chance at the weights. James Pollard has rather lost his way lately and Bernard Llewellyn probably has a better chance with Hereford second Taste The Wine. King Ozzy was a fair third at Market Rasen earlier this month while First Beauty followed up her Ffos Las win with a second at Newton Abbot and is in good heart. Strongly Suggested has been well backed the last twice at Ffos Las but has been campaigned over further and could find a few of these too sharp. WESTERN APPROACHES is on a hat-trick after comfortable wins in novice company at Uttoxeter and Stratford and can go in again.
