Verdict

Some real old stagers and the fact that there is just 2lb between top and bottomweight shows you how close it is. BIDRUMA was rated 64 by the assessor in July and while one couldn't be completely confident given that she has dropped a stone in the ratings since, there is at least the consolation of a very decent draw tonight. Alana Banana produced a better effort last month though that isn't saying a great deal. Francis Albert has been ridden by this claimer on a number of his recent starts though regrettably without success. Mind The Monarch may have needed the run whilst Jonny Ebeneezer and Bluebok are regrettably lights of their former self.
