    Verdict

    It's difficult to find something positive to say about any of these. Richo's only win came back in 2008 and he's returning from a six month absence. BOTHAM hasn't won for some time either, but he's been placed here on more than one occasion since his last victory and gets a speculative vote. Amtired may do better dropping down a grade today and Machir Bay showed a bit of improvement last time. Dubai Gem was engaged to run at Warwick yesterday.
