Verdict

Topthorn beat Sublime Talent and Monarch's Way at Ludlow last month but was well beaten when favourite at Taunton next time. The second-named was never going the pace behind Australia Day at Taunton subsequently while the latter was beaten at Sedgefield. Miss Tenacious has won twice at Wincanton recently but seems to like small fields and this may be too competitive for Ron Hodges' mare. FIFTYONEFIFTYONE came right back to form when scoring at Fontwell and is still well treated on his old form. A follow-up looks on the cards here with Star Galaxy and Bennys Quest having a bit to prove at present.
