Verdict

This is complicated by the fact that top weight Supreme Occasion was due to run last night at Newcastle. In her possible absence, we'll take a chance on MISS VAN GOGH. The 5f was clearly too sharp at Catterick last month and she has a visor and Samantha Bell's claim to help her cause here. Alans Pride is progressing nicely and stayed on well to score over this trip at Beverley on his second start but Binky Blue had to drop into a seller to get off the mark.
