Verdict

Prize Fighter is the only one of these to have won on the track and is on the same mark but ran poorly in testing ground at Newcastle last time. Solway Dornal was just touched off at Musselburgh in November but took a crashing fall there a week later and hasn't been seen since. A Southside Boy makes his handicap debut and may do better while Prickles looked right at home on very heavy ground at Uttoxeter and would be difficult to beat if there's further rain. Sue Smith has placed COVERHOLDER to great effect and though running with a 7lb penalty for completing his hat-trick at Kelso he's been raised by more than that for future races and his young rider's claim can help him to victory number four.
