Verdict

Stonecoldsoba recorded his only win so far at Wolverhampton in November but has been placed over track and trip subsequently when Commissar was well beaten. RALPHY LAD was also placed off much higher marks on several occasions here at this time last year. He’s tumbled down the weights since and Alan Swinbank’s charge can take advantage in this. It’s difficult to have much confidence in any of the remainder in their current poor form though Yul Finegold beat higher rated horses than these to land a claimer over track and trip just over a year ago.
