Verdict

This is competitive but the Chapple-Hyam team is starting to move into gear and FROSTY SECRET created a good impression with the style of her latest Yarmouth success, appearing to have progressed well from a third placing here the time before behind Highlife Dancer. The Echo Of Light filly is taken to progress again off a workable mark of 52. Langley will probably be sent off very short after a 15l demolition job at Wolverhampton on Monday but this is a tougher assignment. He is obviously respected though along with stable companion and recent winner Speed Steed. St Ignatius is now down to a very attractive mark and should be competitive whilst Beacon Lady can never be discounted at her favourite venue.
