Verdict

Considering the trip was much too short, RHUM ran well for a long way on his reappearance at Ffos Las. He's only a couple of pounds higher than when scoring at Wincanton in January and should be too good for Henry San in receipt of 3lb. Alan King's charge did win over 2m6f at Newton Abbot last month, with Tiermore well behind, but looked to be in the handicapper's grip at Southwell subsequently. Fairwood Massini is 9lb higher than when winning over a shorter trip at Ffos Las while Rudigreen is another climbing the weights.
