Race Verdict

Sendinpost has been knocking on the door over a variety of trips and she might prefer a stiffer test than this ideally so a chance is taken on ORANG OUTAN. He has not been at his best in two starts this season but is now just 3lb higher than when winning over this C&D last year and he takes a drop in class today. Glan Lady could also be in the shake-up while Around A Pound should not be left out of calculations.

Selection: Orang Outan        Danger: Glan Lady        Alternative: Sendinpost
