Verdict

Tony Dinozzo would probably have won at Newton Abbot 12 days ago had he not fallen two out. Jumping is becoming a problem for Peter Bowen's charge and Marley Roca unseated his rider at Wincanton last time but Daymar Bay arrives off the back of an easy win at Exeter and Smadynium has only found one too good in both starts over the larger obstacles. WINGS OF SMOKE was only beaten two lengths by Granville Island at Haydock in December and is now 9lb better off. He may just have needed his latest run at Sandown and can beat recent course winner Ballincurrig and the others to open his account for the season.
