    Verdict

    The four-year-old GEMOLOGIST was placed twice here in the spring and ran very well in a similar-class handicap on a return visit last month, form that should be good enough for this. Shetland Bus showed a bit of potential in Ireland and didn't appear to act on the heavy ground on his debut for new connections at Hexham. Winning bumper Sidi Ismael makes his handicap debut though looks high enough in the weights as does Cousin Oscar, who was well beaten off this mark at Sedgefield. Keep The River has gone backwards since her maiden victory while Pammi was soon beaten on her handicap debut at Ayr.
