Verdict

Allnecessaryforce veered violently left out of the stalls at Haydock and crashed through the rails. His only victory came on heavy ground and he would probably need more rain to get competitive. Beat The Tide was beaten a long way when third to Ambleside at Ripon on Saturday and is another who enjoys plenty of give while Chant ran poorly at Hamiliton on his hat-trick bid. ESTEAMING easily landed a York handicap on soft ground in May and, though he hasn't progressed as expected, has been racing on quicker going. Today's conditions should be in his favour and he can return to winning ways, though Grey Blue could pose a threat as he looked a nice prospect when comfortably landing a Beverley maiden last year and hasn't had much racing subsequently.
