Verdict

WITNESS quite impressed latest when returning to form over course and distance under today's pilot who is good value for his 6lb claim in conditional contests. A rise of 6lb for that success may be insufficient to prevent the Micky Hammond inmate from following up with conditions to suit. Stable companion It's All About Me wasn't too bad the last day but has a strong claim if reproducing the level of his close second to Inchcolm on his penultimate start at Catterick. He is also suited by trip and ground. Donnas Dream disappointed last time so Farlam King is more appealing as an alternative on the back of a good second at Kelso last time.
