Verdict

Billy Blade bolted up in a soft-ground seller at Newton Abbot last month and this isn't much better. He has to go on short-list, despite a huge 16lb leap in the weights, but there was a lot to like about FREE ADVICE's second to Sieglinde at Ffos Las and Keith Goldsworthy's five-year-old can go one better here. Peg Leg and Radical bay have hinted at ability and may be capable of better but Jewellery is starting to look exposed over timber and Royale Bruere was still beaten more than 30 lengths despite finishing third at Fontwell last time.
