Verdict

Soul Brother scored over the track and trip last month but didn't have much chance in a much better race at Nottingham a few days later. Ocean Sheridan completed a hat-trick of victories over 6f at Hamilton but the handicapper may have hold of him, though Flashy Queen can go well from just 3lb higher than her victory at Nottingham. DOC CHARM was a very easy winner on testing ground at Chepstow before taking a big step up in class at Haydock where he ran very well for a long way. Back in this company he can return to winning ways, though Jack Luey is up to this grade and any further rain would greatly aid his cause.
