Verdict

Amuse Me is still 3lb higher than when scoring at Sedgefield just under a year ago and remains largely out of sorts but Easily Pleased has dropped to a decent mark and won here last year - he's better treated than Engai. Workbench hasn't raced since April but does go well fresh and he had Bullet Street behind at Taunton in November, though it's about time Evan Williams' charge was winning one of these. FAIRYINTHEWIND defied a big weight to land a novices' handicap at Worcester last month. She's only a five-year-old so may have more to offer and is taken to pass this latest test.
