Verdict

Most sensible punters will be heading for the exit gates rather than playing in a low-grade sprint handicap featuring largely inexperienced apprentices but those left behind should get a run for their money from FLIGHTY CLARETS, who was second over track and trip in the spring and won at Ayr last month off a 3lb lower mark. Teetotal should also give a decent account, despite top weight, but neither Legal Bond nor Dancing Maite have shown a great deal lately and Amethyst Dawn may not be the perfect ride for an apprentice. John Coffey won at Newcastle last month but then took a backward step at Southwell.
