In depth

Verdict

Rail Dancer has a 7lb rise to contend with after scoring over track and trip recently while Shining Romeo has struggled in a couple of subsequent starts since winning here in January. But it could be the turn of HALLING’S WISH again today given he found only one too good over 1m3f here last time and an apprentice’s allowance could give him the edge in this. Bridey's Lettuce is usually thereabouts without winning but Monologue would have a chance if staying this longer trip having won over a mile here last month.
