Verdict

More Equity must have claims at this lowly level, though she appears on the downgrade. Silver Steel beat Mystified at Musselburgh in January while Melua Maid beat the disappointing Sam Patch at Sedgefield a year ago, though is 12lb higher now. A visor may perk up Bob Will and it would be no surprise to see Cloudy Dawn prominent under a 7lb claimer, despite a long break, but BOROLEE was a fair third in a better race at Hexham last month and a little improvement could see him end a long losing run here. Copper's Gold should also go close eased in grade.
