Verdict

Shingle only won a four-runner maiden on debut but did it well and has bags of scope. Drive On has been going well on Polytrack but finished last in both previous starts on Turf. WITHERNSEA disappointed at Haydock last month but probably found conditions too fast. Eased in the weights, he'll be a lot happier on today's surface and could get the better of recent winners Munfallet and Double Czech. Katawi and Classic Pursuit both failed to justify market support last time and La Tinta Bay was last of four at Brighton.
