Verdict

Surf And Turf is invariably well backed and Jonjo O'Neill tries him in first time cheekpieces having witnessed the seven-year-old put up a disappointing display at Newton Abbot six days ago. NINFEA tends to split her time between both codes, and having finished a solid second over an inadequate two miles at Worcester, David Bridgwater's mare can be fancied to go one better this afternoon. Walden Prince came to grief when holding very chance on his most recent start, and though he won a race at Sandown on soft, Tony Carroll's runner appears capable of handling a faster surface. Officially Modern and Tri Nations have a bit to find on their recent efforts and the pair are easy to oppose.
