    Verdict

    VALDAW may have slipped far enough down the weights to finally get his head in front judged on his latest effort at Chepstow when just failing to catch the winner. Tony Carroll's charge gets the nod ahead of Glenluji, who ran his best race so far this year when fifth at this track last time. Cheeky Wee Red also ran well here on his latest start with Shambo Hill Theatre and Shunkawakhan behind but still has something to prove over today's longer trip and it's a hard to make a serious case for any of the remainder.
