    Verdict

    Theatre Act hasn't won for over two years and though well supported at Sedgefield last time after a good run at Carlisle she was beaten a long way. BAZAROV has moved from Ireland where he failed to win though he ran easily his best race at Limerick in December when just failing to make all over slightly further than this. The winner has scored subsequently so Archie Watson's new recruit can go one better. Trapper Peak has won four times over timber, including over 2m1f on soft ground at Sedgefield last time where he got up in the closing stages. The trip shouldn't be a problem though the ground could be a bit lively. Rockliffe went up 7lb for winning over the course and distance in December and ran poorly at Market Rasen while Bocasien Desbois has been chasing and is still a maiden after eight starts over hurdles.
