Verdict

SHEPHERD'S PURSE has a 4lb penalty for winning here last week but still looks reasonably treated and can go in again. Amor Kethley, narrowly beaten the last time he ran here in February, was always travelling nicely when scoring over 6f at Chelmsford and a 4lb rise shouldn't prove too much of a burden. Dark Side Dream has won around here and scored at Yarmouth in August while Great Suspense is slowly dropping in the ratings and David O'Meara should get a race out of him soon. Longroom was behind the selection last week but has a pull in the weights and should get closer.
