Verdict

ENTRAPPING and Red Catkin finished 1-2 at Yarmouth in October with the remainder well beaten. The winner, who has a Polytrack victory to his credit, won with a bit in hand and can confirm the placings and take this. Brave Decision is up 5lb for winning a similar grade handicap from Sutton Sid at Lingfield and that may prevent a follow-up but Minstrel Lad has only been raised 2lb for his recent Wolverhampton success and can get involved. Gung Ho hasn't shown much since arriving from France and could do with a drop in the ratings but Queen Of Skies looks on the way back and should get involved.
