Verdict

Ninjago won a lower grade sprint at Carlisle a fortnight ago having landed a seller before that. There was little between Scuzeme and Lucky Beggar when they filled the places at Thirsk last month while Amazing Grazing has been threatening a return to winning ways recently. Mambila was having his first outing since 2016 when winning a novice race at Redcar last year but hasn’t raced since and has undergone wind surgery. ATALANTA’S BOY returns to action having been awarded a race at Goodwood in May. But a rise in the weights is negated by Tom Greatrex’ allowance and he gets the vote with enough scope for further improvement.
