Verdict

BETWEEN WICKETS has been unfortunate not to have won before and today should put matters right. He's been narrowly beaten in his last three starts but there's nothing wrong with his attitude and he should have too much speed for Lilly Junior, who looked a bit one-paced at Salisbury. Nabeel could prove the fly in the ointment as he was very green on his introduction at Newcastle in October and his pedigree suggests this should be his trip. Distant High's latest run was in a seller.
