Verdict

Blinkers may bring about some improvement in Rising Teal. West End ran his best race so far at Fakenham last time but neither Pennant Dancer nor Earcomesthedream appear the type to defy a penalty though the latter, along with Monderon, is a previous course and distance winner. NEVEROWNUP is only a plater but this looks a modest heat and his yard have been in great form. He stayed on at the one pace over 2m4f last time so maybe the longer trip and stiffer track will suit.
