Verdict

Highrate landed a small race at Hexham in November but appears to have gone backwards since. Carrigdhoun has been harshly treated for last month's win at Ayr while Hollins has disappointed again since finishing second at Catterick. William Money and Foot The Bill have been knocking on the door, however, and should be thereabouts again but we'll give another chance to BALBRIGGAN. He looked a nice prospect when beating Mentalist at Bangor in October but has struggled on soft ground since. The better going today should see him in a better light.
