The handicapper is likely to clobber LACKAMON with a big weight rise after his facile success in a Wetherby handicap on Saturday so racing here with a penalty was always a preferred option. The winning point-to-pointer and bumper was ideally suited by stepping up to today's trip on the Yorkshire track and will be very hard to beat. Bring On The Judge doesn't exactly look well treated on his handicap debut but has plenty of scope for further improvement, while Filippo Lippi has been threatening to win for some time and likes the trip. Radmores Revenge was touched off in the dying strides by Stow at Chepstow having run very well there earlier. He's up in the weights again here but now that he's returned to form looks a big danger.
