Verdict

Sam Lord made all on both occasions to land a double at Sedgefield last month and should make another bold bid. He has the beating of Pertuis, who has since run well over C&D, on latest running and had earlier beaten a below-par Stanley Bridge. However, SWISS ART found only one too good at Haydock three weeks ago in a higher grade than this and Sue Smith's charge can take advantage of the drop in class and get his head back in front. Forster Street looks best of the rest.
