    Verdict

    DISTANT APPLAUSE has improved for wind surgery and won over 6f at Chelmsford in December. He’s worth another try over today’s longer trip with a tongue-tie added today and is preferred to Secret Lightning. The latter has been off the track since finishing second over 1m2f in May last year and Dark Confidant makes more appeal back over 7f as he slides further down the weights. Brother In Arms has been thereabouts over 6f recently though one win in 23 attempts fails to boost confidence in his chances.
