Race Verdict

Dandy Nicholls usually places his horses to good effect at plating level and his POINT AT ISSUE is taken to land a double having landed a Redcar claimer on firm ground earlier in the month. Also a winner at Southwell, this slower surface isn't expected to hinder. Thorpe Bay flopped in a Lingfield seller when last sighted and has a little to prove at present. A greater danger appears to be the dropped-in-trip First Bid.
