    Verdict

    Nigel Twiston-Davies has his fair share of winners at this track and TOREADOR may find the necessary improvement with headgear applied having finished fifth in a stronger-looking race at Ffos Las last time. Hanahoe has also been competing in better company and could finish closer while Willard ran well for a long way before fading at Hereford last month and could be in the shake-up. Irish import and bumper winner Oran Flyer is worth noting on his debut for Evan Williams.
