Verdict

Heart O' The West has been off the track for a long time but is nicely handicapped if anywhere near his best. Brian Ellison tries the three-year-old Fine Kingdom in a handicap after he went down with all guns blazing behind Red Tyke at Kelso. He shouldn't be far away but Snowed In's jumping continues to impede any progress and Ritsi was tailed off over a longer trip at Bangor in August. RUPERT BEAR's Hexham victory in May didn't amount to much but he didn't fare badly on his return at Kelso last month and gets a tentative vote here.
