In depth

Verdict

Khun John brought nearly a two year drought to an end when scoring at Kempton last time and remains on a winning mark despite a 4lb rise while Visions Of Johanna is always capable of popping up at this level as he did over C&D last month. However, GOWER RULES was winning off a higher mark at Windsor last year and, after posting a better effort at Kempton last time, it could be his turn today. Black Iceman has gone off the boil since registering a C&D double earlier in the year but Irish import and hurdles winner Teak is worth a second glance on his return to the Flat and first start for Ian Williams.
