Verdict

Vendor has his sights lowered but is still 7lb higher than when scoring at Newbury in November. RUMBLE OF THUNDER looks to be right back to his best and is only a couple of pounds higher than when caught right on the line by Hidden Justice at Haydock last month. Adam Nichol claims 5lb so Philip Kirby's charge is fancied to get back to winning ways though Hit The Top has been generally progressive and travelled strongly for a long way when second in a decent handicap at Sedgefield last time. Fine Rightly steps out of novice company and won't find it easy to dominate these more experienced handicappers as Musselburgh scorer Wyse Hill Teabags also likes to be prominent. Portway Flyer was entered here yesterday.
