Verdict

DARK LANE followed up a win at Chepstow with a decent third at Nottingham off today's mark. David Evans' charge looks capable of getting his head back in front in this company and is preferred to Haajes, who won a seller at Redcar last time. Quality Art has something to find with the selection on latest running while Boucher Garcon has posted a couple of woeful efforts either side of a second at Redcar. Beverley winner, Avon Breeze, could get involved on her return and Blue Shoes is better than her poor comeback effort at Thirsk suggests.
