Verdict

WELL PAINTED has finally been given some respite by the handicapper after a string of good efforts in better company than this last season. William Haggas' charge can take advantage dropped in class and land this. Diescentric scored at Kempton in November and should handle the soft going on his return while Myboyalfie is also at home over trip and ground and will have come on for his reappearance at Doncaster. Sam Nombulist is 5lb higher than last year's win at Newmarket and Sandy Lane has a 10lb hike to contend with having now won for four of his last five starts.
