Your Gifted would have leading claims if taking part but was engaged to run at Chepstow yesterday. Stonecrabstomorrow has a penalty for winning over C&D last week and BERMONDSEY BOB makes more appeal. His last victory came at this track and a couple of recent placed efforts suggest a return to winning ways is imminent. John Spearing's charge gets the nod ahead of Welsh Inlet, who is still a maiden, and Highland Harvest, who is in need of some respite from the handicapper.
Highland Harvest 13-2 (9-9) Led until over 2f out, soon rallied and every chance, kept on same pace final furlong, 4th of 8, 4l behind Elsie's Orphan (9-9) at Brighton 6f hcp 0-70 (5) gd.
Your Gifted (IRE) 12-1 (9-2) Soon led on rail, clear over 1f out, ran on well, unchallenged, won at Thirsk 5f hcp 0-65 (6) gd beating Lees Anthem (9-2) by 4 1/2l, 17 ran.

Bermondsey Bob (IRE) 11-1 (9-4) Made most, ridden over 1f out, headed inside final furlong, stayed on same pace, 2nd of 14, 1l behind Flying Applause (9-10) at Nottingham 6f hcp 0-65 (6) gf.
