Verdict

Forgetthesmalltalk ran a blinder when returning from a lengthy absence at Kempton and must go on the shortlist. Doncaster third Vodka All The Way should again beat Connetable. Mister Murchan arrives in good form and is unlikely to be far away again while Roccowithlove has a chance if putting a tumble at Catterick behind him. TAMBURA is approaching the veteran stage but hasn’t had much racing in recent years. He never looked like catching Mister Murchan at Plumpton last month but there shouldn’t be much between the pair on today’s revised terms.
