Verdict

Eldelbar won a lower grade contest here yesterday and is penalised while Pholas could only finish third at the same fixture. Course regular CRITICAL THINKING has won eight times here including this race last year. He’s been threatening to get his head back in front with a string of placed efforts and gets another chance in this. Little Red Socks scored over track and trip last month but Bombastic has looked high enough in the weights since scoring at Lingfield in November. Blame Culture has a shout in this grade while Lets Go Lucky won a claimer at Lingfield at this time last year.
