Verdict

Three Ships and Lightening Sky are returning from similar long breaks while Tony Carroll's stable has just gone off the boil a little lately, which counts against bottom weight Crazy Bold. Joker Choker should be capable of improving on what he's shown so far but Just One Thing is likely to find this grade too tough so this could rest between Art Broker and LAP OF HONOUR. The former was only beaten half-a-length off this mark at Taunton last month but Ferdy Murphy's charge will be all the better for his Sedgefield second and gets the nod.
