Verdict

A cracking final day gets under way with a hugely competitive sprint handicap in which Dandy Nicholls saddles recent winners Thunderball and Saucy Brown as well as the winner of last year's renewal Joseph Henry. The former may be the pick of the trio, despite the penalty. Mymumsaysimthebest is another in cracking form, while Racy looks the best of Kevin Ryan's three runners. Kingsgate Choice could go well off a low weight but it may well be worth sticking with MAC GILLE EOIN, who came right back to form at Epsom last month and is still well handicapped on his best form over this trip.
