Verdict

FIGHTER BOY finally came up with the goods at this track last week having tumbled down the weights and Matthew Hopkins' claim negates a large chunk of his 7lb penalty. He can go in again in this company given Norwegian Reward returned a disappointing favourite at Lingfield last time having won twice at the same track last month. Rockgoat remains out of form while Tyrur Ted has come up short off lower marks of late, though he did have Landown Littlerock behind when runner-up here last month.
