    Verdict

    STOW made a mess of the last and was caught close home by Belle De Fontenay over track and trip earlier this month. But you would expect Michael Blake's once-useful eight-year-old to take his revenge on better terms today with Josh Wall again taking off 7lb. Sublime Talent could feature back over hurdles as he looks favoured by the weights but Thinger Licht has much to prove at present and Persian Herald appears to reserve his best for Fakenham, where he was fourth in a handicap 10 days ago. Woody Waller, like Sublime Talent, is another who's been chasing.
