    Verdict

    Piper Bomb arrives from Ireland with cheekpieces added to the usual tongue-tie having finished fourth here just three days ago behind third-placed Dodgy Bob. Stablemate Taceec ran at the same meeting and makes his handicap debut but Musbaq is still looking for his first win after placing at Southwell. Harbour Patrol and MALAYSIAN BOLEH are both course and distance winners back on winning marks with slight preference for the latter given Phil McEntee’s charge has the more recent form and he gets the token vote in a weak handicap.
