Verdict

The handicapper is finding it difficult to drop Echos Of Motivator in the weights as he's been running well without actually winning. Until he finally gets his head in front, he's worth taking on and MEDITERRANEAN SEA makes more appeal. She bids for a hat-trick off a 4lb higher mark after a couple of wins at this track and, given With Hindsight is unproven over today's longer trip and on the Fibresand and Straversjoy has done all his winning at Wolverhampton, John Jenkins' mare gets the nod. Today's distance is an unknown for Warwick winner Sergeant Troy and the remainder are hard to fancy.
