Verdict

David Pipe has acquired the former Grade 1 winning hurdler Punjabi and Tom Scudamore rides the 10-year-old in this, though he's not the force of old and the stable may have better prospects with Shotavodka. The latter is only a couple of pounds higher than when second at Bangor and Kieron Edgar takes off 7lb. Mischievous Milly made a promising comeback in a Listed race at Wetherby while Native Gallery has the past form to figure. Don't Be Late reserves his best for Worcester, however, and Gibb River may need another run or two to put him straight after a lay-off. The Bear Trap doesn't always find a great deal off the bridle but should be in the firing-line, while Citizenship is potentially well treated on his first start for Venetia Williams. Saphir Du Rheu is unexposed, as is Master Of The Game. But so is GASSIN GOLF and the handicapper may have underestimated Richard Lee's four-year-old. Though still a maiden, the bottom weight has run some fine races in novice company and deserves a change of luck.
