Verdict

Pacolita is a little quirky and was due to run at Wolverhampton yesterday. Salisbury fourth Celestial Knight is rated a couple of pounds higher on the all-weather but has won twice at Kempton while this is Skidby Mill's level. Adam Kirby takes over from an apprentice on JONNIE SKULL and Phil McEntee's veteran looks capable of going close in a race like this off his current mark, especially with a good draw.
