Verdict

CLOUD CREEPER looks to be the one to be on in this opener as there was nothing wrong with his third to the useful Ptit Zig at Ludlow in February and he followed that up with a second to subsequent scorer Walkabout Creek at Sedgefield when he was 10 lengths clear of the third horse. Deep Trouble made a promising start for new connections when second at Newbury in March while Oyster Shell was just touched off in a novices' handicap at Stratford last month. Picture Post may be open to improvement but Nail 'M may find the drop in distance counting against him and Hexham third Northern Oscar is nothing special.
