Verdict

It's so tempting to oppose IT'S ONLY BUSINESS now he has to give a stone or more to his opponents on the back of two wins. However, he really has been untroubled to complete that double and looked better than ever last time. He has already beaten many of today's rivals with ease and looks worth following until beaten despite the double penalty. Lindenhurst showed promise on his Hexham debut behind Akdam whilst there are a couple off the Flat who are of interest. Charlie Mann has taken charge of the former Mark Johnston inmate, Scepticism, whilst Town Mouse showed some fair form for Hughie Morrison on the level and it is the latter who could emerge as the main threat to the more experienced selection.
