Verdict

Amenable loves a testing surface and scored on the Fibresand at Southwell last week. But he might get found out here under a penalty and Ann Stokell also runs Polytrack winner Profile Star. Paul Midgley is another trainer who is double-handed but Haajes is starting to look a light of former days and Adam's Ale has been struggling to get his head in front lately, though did beat Holy Angel on worse terms over 6f here last year. A market check is advised on BORIS GRIGORIEV after a break but it's interesting that Mick Easterby has booked Graham Gibbons to ride as the same jockey was on board when he scored at Ayr in September in a better race than this- the five-year-old gets the nod.
