Verdict

Malcolm Saunders may lack some of the stars he once had but his horses are running well and WOODEN KING can land the nightcap. The eight-year-old hasn't got his head in front for a year but the handicapper has begun to relent, and having just missed out last week, he appears to be off a very fair mark at present. There won't be too much dead weight in Aidan Coleman's saddle so Volito can be a factor if he can reproduce last week's effort behind the selection. Catalinas Diamond caught the eye in defeat when attempting 6f and Pat Murphy slaps the hood on for the first time, whilst Roanne continues to be campaigned as a sprinter having struggled over further. You'relikemefrank is better known as a Polytrack performer but Richard Ford's gelding shouldn't be ruled out as he has won off a higher mark on the Turf in the past.
