Verdict

SHADES OF SILVER is one of the more obvious choices in a low grade contest. He's a winner without a penalty, having landed an apprentices' race at Nottingham last week, and gets the vote on that basis. Newcastle winner Gabrial The Thug is not out of this dropped in class while Mcmonagle finished a lot closer at Redcar, having slipped down the weights. Tunnel Tiger also posted a better effort when runner-up at Yarmouth recently and Sheer Poetry has more scope than most.
