Verdict

Jonnie Skull pops-up on occasions and did so over C&D earlier in the week but Lord Buffhead was unable to follow-up his earlier win at Wolverhampton under a penalty last time when Colourbearer finished runner-up. Frognal finished ahead of Waterloo Dock in a claimer here last month and Desert Strike should be thereabouts but SPEAK THE TRUTH won twice at this time last year including a division of this race. It could be his turn again today after a decent effort over C&D last time and Roger Ingram's sprinter gets the nod.
