Verdict

This is a very modest handicap and VERY STYLISH is probably worth another chance to recapture the winning thread. He hasn't scored since 2012 but is 25lb lower than when last successful and had Rifleman more than 20 lengths behind when second at Southwell last time. Plum Pudding fell in that race and isn't the force of old but Noble Witness had been knocking on the door prior to his latest sixth at Southwell and Quayside Court is back on a winning mark so is worth a market check.
