Verdict

Slowmo has won here in the past but is proving best at Southwell and finished in front of Lorna Cole when second at the latter track last month having earlier beaten Scale Force when winning on the Fibresand. LONGROOM is preferred on this surface having scored off a similar mark at Newcastle in November and he should have the beating of Indian Pursuit on collateral form. It Must Be Faith struggled drawn on the outside here a fortnight ago but had been in good form over 6f before that.
