Verdict

Kim Bailey has his team in good order but Ballywatt is closely matched with Entertain Me on their run together behind Ratify at Chepstow. Wings Of Smoke needs some help from the handicapper but there should be more to come from Ludlow winner Prima Porta and Mcvicar is only a five-year-old. GRANVILLE ISLAND has a win and a place to his name from two runs on this course and was only beaten a neck over track and trip in March. Only a pound higher, Jennie Candlish's charge can get back to winning ways ahead of the disappointing Dunowen Point and Frontier Spirit.
