Verdict

A race likely to be run at a decent gallop with several confirmed front-runners among the six entries. Golden Jeffrey has been struggling to get home but Nendrum has only found one too good the last twice and Chookie Royale made all at Sedgefield. MAN LOOK stays further so may well out-last his rivals, though Hexham scorer Strong Team will be poised to pounce should the trail-blazers cut each others’ throats.
