Verdict

Dawn Ride looks to be in the handicapper's grip again now but there are certainly possibilities about PEEDEEQUE, who was third off a higher mark in a much better race at Doncaster three runs ago and far from disgraced over 3m at Market Rasen last time when subsequent Hexham second Lawgiver was behind. He gets the vote though Winning Habit must be a danger on his second to the in-form Velator at Newbury and the lightly-raced Winstone got off the mark over 2m4f at Newcastle earlier this month.
