Verdict

Charlie Snow Angel had been threatening a return to winning ways until finishing a well beaten third at Kelso and it could pay to stick with VIVACCIO. Venetia Williams’ charge ended a barren spell with victory over today’s trip at Huntingdon last month and the form looks solid enough having beaten a couple of subsequent winners. The remainder are struggling to find their best at present though Smuggler's Blues slides further down the weights and Thyne For Gold won off a similar mark over track and trip in November.
