Verdict

None of these inspire much confidence but a token vote goes to GEORGE FENTON. He finished ahead of Iceblast on the Polytrack earlier this year and this looks slightly easier than his most recent task at Doncaster. West Leake Hare is getting no nearer to ending his barren spell despite slipping down the weights and Berbice was still beaten 11 lengths when third at Wolverhampton in November. Lothair won a Hamilton seller last summer and True Prince remains 6lb higher than September's win at Bath. Tony Hollis is back on the same mark as when scoring over a mile here last season and should go well.
