Verdict

Safe Home landed a bit of a gamble when returning from a very long absence at Market Rasen and it wouldn’t need much more to follow up here. Jimmi Chew has hinted at ability and Speedy Gonzalez has been lightly raced and sports blinkers for the first time. GLOBAL RHAPSODY looks the pick of Neil Mulholland’s two runners on his staying-on third at Bangor so gets a tentative vote.
