Verdict

Wise Words was a stiff task bidding for a hat-trick in Listed company at Sandown though wasn’t disgraced in fourth. But she’s now 15lb higher than when scoring at Redcar earlier while Wedding Date could only manage third off today’s mark at Windsor last week having won at Newmarket before that. TINTO hasn’t won anywhere so far this year but went close to doing so at Sandown recently when finishing clear of the rest. He should make a bold bid having been beaten only a neck when last at this venue in May. Glory Fighter lowers his sights on his reappearance having competed in Pattern races without success last year and has been gelded subsequently but Country Rose continues to struggle.
