Verdict

Not a strong race by any stretch of the imagination and BEDOUIN BAY was such a convincing winner at Worcester last night that it's hard to field against him despite the additional penalty. Ullswater has a first start for Emma Lavelle and cannot be totally dismissed if he can reproduce a fair second in a hot handicap at Worcester. White Diamond is exposed as modest but she did win a Fakenham contest off a mark of 95 and is just 3lb higher on a return to hurdling. Interestingly, Sam Twiston-Davies sticks with Nether Stream and following a pleasing enough performance off tonight's mark at Wincanton last month, it's not hard to understand why. Border Station cut little ice over fences and he is best watched in the market on his reappearance.
