Verdict

Bafana Blue won in this grade at Wetherby and One Forty Seven found plenty when returning to winning ways at Uttoxeter. Soupy Soups was in fair form in the autumn but looks a few pounds too high on his return to action. Blakerigg has also had a break since beaten at Uttoxeter in December but finished a long way ahead of Fly Rory Fly earlier at the same track. Knockrobin is slipping down the weights but still looks vulnerable and this can go to PETIVILLE, who will enjoy the better ground having found 3m5f on soft going too far last time at Warwick.
