Verdict

King Of Swords looked a tad unlucky at Thirsk on Friday and is respected but MR WOLF could bring the card to an emotional close. The evergreen ever popular course specialist may not quite be the force of old but he wasn't beaten too far behind Orpsie Boy last time and is starting to look very well handicapped. The drop back in trip won't bother him and he should be hard to pass as he tries to make every yard from the one box. Not My Choice looks sure to be involved with Kieren Fallon doing the steering whilst Namir is another well handicapped campaigner who runs this track well but he's probably more of an each-way play with his losing run stretching back to September 2008. Comptonspirit arrives in great form and can do better than Blessed Place, down the field on Friday at Thirsk behind King Of Swords who had to be switched a furlong out, but we'll be cheering Mr Wolf home.
