Verdict

SNOOKER JIM is still looking for his first win but found only one too good at Nottingham when finishing in front of Break The Silence and it could be the turn of Steph Hollinshead’s charge today. Tha'ir won over a longer trip here last month and has placed in both subsequent starts while Imperial Act won at Chelmsford on her penultimate outing but returned a losing favourite at Brighton last week. Misu Pete can do better back on the all-weather today after poor efforts on Turf but Soldier Blue looks no nearer winning.
