    Verdict

    Skeaping won a couple of plating races over shorter trips including at this venue in October but was beaten over 2m2f at Stratford last time. TODD is preferred representing last year’s winning yard and dropping down in class after finishing runner-up here last month. He also scored over course and distance off today’s mark at the end of last year. Harbour Force is another back on a winning mark but will need to improve on recent form to figure while Cryogenics has yet to win over timber and looks no nearer doing so.
