Race Verdict

Red Law is respected on his return from a 393-day absence but Mark Gillard's charge is entitled to strip fitter for the run and, with that in mind, it is KNAPP BRIDGE BOY who gets the nod. The veteran bounced right back to form over the C&D last month and is expected to go one better this afternoon with a bit of juice in the ground. Of the others, Whatshallwedo failed to justify favouritism at Fontwell latest but isn't completely out of it with 5lb claimer Michael Byrne aboard.

Selection: Knapp Bridge Boy        Danger: Red Law        Alternative: Whatshallwedo
