Verdict

LITTLE BOY BLUE has been threatening to get his head back in front with recent placed efforts. Bill Turner’s grey was beaten less than a length at Brighton last time and finished well ahead of Waseem Faris when third here before that. The latter should be sharper for that outing and finish closer today and the same comment applies to Glamorous Rocket, who won off today’s mark at Kempton in October. Peace Dreamer won here at this time last year but hasn’t raced since June and Bungee Jump was due to run at Chepstow yesterday.
