Verdict

Blessed To Empress scored over track and trip back in August while Incentive won off today’s mark at Ffos Las last summer. Just An Idea landed a lowly Class 7 contest here in December but Penarth Pier has the most recent winning form with a victory over today’s trip at Kempton in February. Fieldsman is back on a winning mark and could figure but a chance is taken on SCORCHED BREATH. A runner-up at Wolverhampton in March having tumbled down the weights, he’s undergone wind surgery since and that may bring the improvement needed to finally get his head in front.
