Verdict

Unable to claim his usual role at the head of affairs, JOHNNY HANCOCKS put in a rare below par effort over C&D last time. He had shown his true colours when going close in similar company at Wolverhampton before that and is taken to hang on for victory here. Only a head separated him from Golden Shine at Wolverhampton however and, although she too has ran poorly since, the filly also looks to have every chance if back to her best. Instructress was not far behind in the same race and should also figure, but Miss Toldyaso has a bit to find at the weights.
