Verdict

A few of these struggle to get their heads in front while Le Boizelo has yet to prove his stamina over this longer trip. Wizards Bridge ran no sort of race in the Silver Buck at Wincanton and was pulled up, though is better than that. Court Frontier is well handicapped but not the force of old and Blameitalonmyroots also has a bit to prove nowadays. BIG MEADOW made a promising reappearance over a much longer trip here last month and can build on that if the likely strong pace materialises. Achille tried to make all at Bangor and was only caught on the run to the last so looks better treated than Duke Des Champs and Run To Milan.
