Verdict

Experimentalist was beaten only a nose on his comeback at Kempton and first start for Tim Vaughan. Previous winner Llamadas wasn't far behind and it's difficult to separate that pair. Honest Strike couldn't follow-up an earlier win here when fifth on his latest outing and steps up in trip today while Turjuman doesn't look any nearer to ending his long losing run. DR FINLEY won over today's distance at Thirsk in August and this looks less competitive. Lydia Pearce's charge had a spin over hurdles in November and may well be far enough forward to make a winning return to the Flat.
