Verdict

Round The Island was placed at Wolverhampton last time and is not out of this while Lucky Lodge won at Redcar last month but is 11lb higher back on the all-weather. Ventura Secret is back on a winning mark and was beaten less than a length when fourth at Redcar recently but INDIAN WARRIOR is just preferred. The latter went close over track and trip last week on his first start since joining Ruth Carr and will be winning off his current mark soon on that evidence. Avenue Of Stars has won again at Carlisle since scoring here in August but Kommander Kirkup saves his best for Southwell.
