    Verdict

    THOMAS BLOSSOM went close to defying a 6lb rise when third over 1m6f here last time. He had earlier scored over today's trip at Lingfield. The Yank's winning run came to an end with a poor effort at Lingfield last month but Paris Snow found some form at last when narrowly beaten at Kempton having tumbled down the weights. A 3lb rise proved too much for the veteran Snow Dancer last time having won here before that while Bowberry has also struggled since scoring here in February.
