Verdict

After winning at Newton Abbot and Ludlow in October, Drinks Interval was probably a bit out of her depth in a Class 2 event at Newbury but she should have every chance in a race like this with James Bowen taking off a handy 5lb. Speedalong ran well upped to this trip at Warwick in April but hasn’t been seen since. Shadow's Boy is starting to look a little exposed but has yet to finish out of the frame under Rules. ALLEZ JACQUES left previous form behind when only beaten a head in a maiden at Uttoxeter and any further improvement could see him take this as Vivant needs to find some consistency.
