      Verdict

      DOMMERSEN (NAP) deservedly got his head back in front at Chelmsford last time having gone very close on three earlier occasions. Roger Fell’s charge has won off much higher marks in the past and can defy a 3lb rise having earlier finished well ahead of the re-opposing Thawry, Remmy D and Rockwood. Winged Spur is 7lb higher than an earlier win at Redcar as she returns to action while Restive and Seaborough continue to struggle.
