Verdict

Rouge Nuage went up 4lb for his victory at Yarmouth but was able to run off a lower mark at Wolverhampton on Friday night. He missed the break and never got going until too late but still finished runner-up to Fiftyshadesofreed. EMMAN BEE is not the most reliable but has the beating of these on her win over course and distance earlier in the month. She beat Hawk Moth four lengths and the latter went on to win over 7f here beating Hierarch and Big City Boy in the process. Elle Rebelle and Byrd In Hand also have plenty to find with the selection so Le Deluge may prove a bigger threat having tumbled down the weights this season.
