Verdict

Today's trip and going will suit Farmer Matt and Tweedledrum as both go in search of a hat-trick. The former already holds a verdict over Pause And Clause and looks a leading contender while War On and Herdsman both scored over 2m4f at this track last month and also have a shout. SAMMYS GONE just failed to follow up a win at Hereford when beaten less than a length by a Paul Nicholls hotpot at Wincanton last time. He finished well ahead of the rest of the field and normal progress can see Philip Hobbs' charge back to winning ways in this.
