Verdict

Ullswater gained due reward for a series of promising efforts in defeat when obliging at Uttoxeter and while he's sure to put up another creditable performance, he may find STRONGLY SUGGESTED too good. The six-year-old won a bumper on his debut, and having struggled to make much impact on a softer surface, he recently landed a handicap at Market Rasen. Two miles around Worcester proved to be much too sharp and he can return to winning ways over this longer trip. Riddlestown obliged in what appeared to be a modest contest at Fakenham at the time. That said, the third has gone on to account for some superior rivals at unfavourable terms in a recent seller at Southwell. Diamond Tammy was a wide margin winner of a Uttoxeter seller, and he makes a debut this afternoon for Anthony Middleton.
