Verdict

Ian Williams has a strong hand in this with Mexican Mick open to further progress after finishing third at Doncaster last month. But stablemate AN CAT DUBH is just preferred as he'd gone close on his last two starts when trained in Ireland and Franny Norton is booked to ride on his first start for new connections. Shaleek and Sabore are a frustrating pair having both gone close on numerous occasions though the former is rated 8lb higher while Pull The Pin will need to step up on his latest placed effort in a Leicester seller if he's to figure.
