Verdict

Grapevine pulled off a 25/1 upset in a Listed handicap at Market Rasen on his first run for Sophie Leech. He was then sent to Galway but never figured in another tough handicap. Back in novice company, he must have every chance of picking up the winning thread again despite the penalty. But James Bowen is an interesting booking for Noel Kelly’s WOOSTER and the Irish raider may offer more value given he’s shown improved form in his last three starts. Seaborough is fit from the Flat but was possibly flattered by his debut over hurdles last season.
