Verdict

Someone's Darling won a lesser grade event at Redcar last time and needs more while stablemate Algar Lad disappointed on his handicap debut having won at Musselburgh before that. Repetition's recent second at Lingfield came over 7f so Sand Boy makes more appeal after finding only one too good at Ripon on his latest start. RIGHT TOUCH scored at the same track in April and has ran well in better company than this in a couple of subsequent outings. Richard Fahey's charge can race off the same mark as when third at Haydock last month and gets the nod.
