Verdict

Winsley Hill has failed to impress after finishing last year with a bang and Breaking Storm won well at Sedgefield previously but JIMBATAI is our selection ahead of Herne Bay. The pick wasn't far behind King Of Castile at Wetherby latest and the trip will be ideal. There are no reservations regarding the conditions as he generally delivers a good run. Two races ago he finished a distance behind Picaroon at Chepstow and this is a concern but if showing the sort of effort that he is capable of then this could be an ideal opportunity to add to his list of victories. Winsley Hill has claims if returning to the ability she showed last year but we avoid given a terrible try last time out. Herne Bay hasn't been seen for two years and remains an interesting prospect if returning from that long break with a flourish. He has a good record over the hurdles and Paddy Brennan will try to bring out the best in the Ian Williams ten-year-old. Taffy Thomas has finished second on his last two tries but was a long way behind the winner on both occasions. The nod goes to Jimbatai to return to winning ways.
