    Verdict

    RHUBARB BIKINI has been in the mix at Chelmsford recently and this looks a slightly easier opportunity. Several will be looking to improve on the back of comeback runs including Flying West, who is reunited with winning partner Tom Marquand and preferred to Fortune And Glory and Colonel Whitehead. Subliminal does all his winning over further and another course regular in Accomplice makes more appeal over today’s trip.
