Verdict

Arthur's Sixpence came good over fences at Uttoxeter but that wasn’t much of a race, though he is only 4lb higher and is still unexposed. LOUGH HAR looked one to follow after finishing second at Doncaster at the start of the year. He disappointed on his reappearance but has now been fitted with a tongue-tie and that can help him bounce back. Chanceanotherfive is probably more likely than Sporting Press to give his running following a lay-off.
