Verdict

Fazza won this last year and an apprentice's 5lb claim should see him make another bold bid today on the back of a recent third at Pontefract behind WISEMAN'S DIAMOND. The latter recorded a cosy two-length victory in the heavy ground on that occasion with Betteras Bertie back in fifth and looks capable of following up here. Save The Bees has been running well without success and shouldn't be far away again while Keys Of Cyprus should finish closer with a recent pipe-opener over 7f here under his belt.
