Verdict

An interesting race despite the small field and one that can go to BENTLEY BROOK who can beat Follow The Dream and Saloon. Our selection caused an upset when holding on to beat Follow The Dream last time at Wolverhampton and despite having to carry a penalty today looks value to confirm the form back at his favourite course. Contrastingly, Karen George's horse is yet to race here and as one who seems to relish relatively quick conditions on the turf looks worth opposing this time until proving the surface holds no fears. Saloon is a talented but quirky performer and another who hasn't yet tried this surface, but if able to adapt would be more than capable of landing this relatively moderate heat having run in many stronger races in the past. Leyte Gulf ran well off a pound lower last time having previously scored at Wolverhampton and so looks likely to run a solid race but course form is thin on the ground where this one is concerned and so the gelding is narrowly passed over, whilst in contrast course specialist Victory Quest should enjoy the conditions but hasn't been running well lately and perhaps age is catching up with the nine-year-old. This should make intriguing viewing and our token selection is Bentley Brook.
