    In depth

    Verdict

    Billy Wedge had The Retriever back in third when winning over track and trip in October but has looked high enough in the weights since. Lucky Violet never threatened when runner-up in an even lower grade than this here last time while Bobby Joe Leg’s earlier placed effort at Wolverhampton came in a weak classified event. SIENA MIA has yet to threaten in handicaps but went close in novice company at Wolverhampton the last time she raced over today’s trip and gets a speculative vote to come good today having more scope than most of these.
