Verdict

Napping arrives on the back of a victory at Yarmouth but hasn’t scored on the all-weather in 10 attempts so far. Daring Guest was placed yet again when runner-up at Chelmsford and gets a change of headgear while Papa Delta found one too good over 7f on the Turf course here last time and is 3lb higher back on the Polytrack. BILLYOAKES scored at Chelmsford on his latest start but also won off today’s higher mark over course and distance in December and Charlie Wallis’ charge is taken to reverse running with Tavener here in March and go in again.
