Verdict

It was soft ground when Clubland won at Newcastle last month and Secret City is preferred. The latter scored over track and trip last time when just getting the better of Lenny Bee with subsequent Carlisle winner Spykes Bay further behind. Lenny Bee also came out second best when taking on Half A Billion at Doncaster and the inconsistent Towbee threw in one of his below par efforts last time having won over 5f here before that. Meandmyshadow has claims if forgiven an off-day at Chester but the vote in an open sprint goes to WILLBEME, who will have come on for her recent reappearance and showed progressive form when landing a double in August last year.
