Verdict

None of these inspire much confidence and as such EYEDORO gets only a tentative vote. He was still beaten six lengths despite finishing third over C&D on his return from a two month lay-off, but his stable has hit top form recently and he gets another chance. Bravestofthebrave ran a shocker in the same race as the selection last time having been beaten only a short-head at this track before that. He gets first-time blinkers today as a result, while Frosty Friday has been placed over a mile at this track and could surprise both of the above if lasting home. National Hunt winner Candelita has her first start on the level, though a well beaten debut in a bumper on this surface gives her something to prove.
