Verdict

A tough race for punters with the ground likely to be against many but WIZARDS DUST handles it and can see off Garleton and Ballygalley Bob. Granted, his form has been a little below par this season but the seven-year-old has exhibited his better form when the ground is genuinely quick and back to a realistic mark, he can go well at a price. Garleton is in form having posted back to back successes at Catterick. All ground appears to come alike to him. Ballygalley Bob was allowed a soft lead at Warwick and made his rivals toil. This race is against much stronger opposition and the other riders will presumably be alert to the likelihood of a repeat. Finzi stays further than this although is unproven on the surface. Minella Four Star capsized at Warwick after holding every chance. The trip should hold few fears. Huka Lodge is an old favourite around Haydock though seems better with more give in the ground. Stagecoach Diamond was well punted at Kelso last time out. He almost got home before his finishing frailties came to bear. The most difficult race on the card to assess and Wizards Dust is put forward to minimum stakes.
