Verdict

Fingerontheswitch bounced back last time but this looks slightly harder and he's been hoisted 5lb by the assessor. TRIGGER NICHOL needs to be forgiven a poor run last time but presumably something was amiss with the Newland inmate and he's only been dropped 1lb for the disappointment. Admittedly, he's on a high enough mark but if able to recapture the level of his penultimate run when a facile winner at Leicester, he could go close. He is also back at a trip and on ground which are favourable. Chimes Of Dylan and Dr Robin both arrive in winning form and are respected accordingly whilst Marble Moon and Our Reward cannot be ruled out in an open contest.
