Verdict

Punching is a prolific winner on Fibresand but it's a long time since he scored on turf. BELINSKY has dropped to a lowly mark and looked on the way back at Leicester. He appears to have as good a chance as any in a moderate event and Robert Winston will get the best out of him. The handicapper has taken pity on Alis Aquilae and dropped him 3lb following a reasonable run at Beverley so he's another who should get involved and Downhill Skier is running well enough to consider.
