Race Verdict

VISIONS OF JOHANNA has been raised 2lb for finishing runner-up at Wolverhampton last month but pulled comfortably clear of the third, despite racing a little wider than ideal and having been delivered a fraction too late by his rider. Considering he has placed form at Southwell to his name, it is hoped that the slow conditions will suit today. Spiritual Art and Prince Blue have been holding their form well on polytrack and are others worthy of consideration.

Selection: Visions Of Johanna        Danger: Prince Blue        Alternative: Spiritual Art
