Verdict

Monkhair, SPARKLING BROOK and Wee Ziggy catch the eye here with Sparkling Brook taken to maintain his recent improvement. Monkhair is chasing a hat-trick and off only a 4lb higher mark he must go well. However, the form of those wins looks quite weak, and he looks worth taking on at the likely restrictive price. Wee Ziggy has run well on his last two starts, finishing close up on both occasions. He has failed to win however in over 30 starts and is taken on. Sparkling Brook turned in a fine performance behind an in form type last time, and though this trip may be on the sharp side, further progression seems likely. Sparkling Brook is relatively unexposed and looks well treated.
