Verdict

Plenty of these have been struggling to get their head in front but the blinkers appear to have reawakened the enthusiasm of GRIFFIN POINT and Willie Musson's mare can arrest a long losing run. Drawnfromthepast isn't quite as effective on turf as he is on artificial surfaces though his five previous wins have been obtained when the going has some element of firm in the description. Triple Dream won a recent handicap on Lingfield's Polytrack and gets to take his chance off a 7lb lower mark tonight. Ryan Style has ability but it's now two years since he visited the winner's enclosure, while Charming has a decent jockey booking in Willie Twiston-Davies. Sophie's Beau is racing from out of the handicap and Michael Chapman's six-year-old could be of interest at longer odds as he held other potential engagements closer to his North Yorkshire base.
