Race Verdict

Law To Himself ended last season on an upward curve and entered the new campaign on a feasible mark. He could go close but there's a question mark about the trip and he wouldn't want any more significant rain either. He ties in closely with TAPIS LIBRE on Redcar running last November and there may be little between them again. Narrow preference is for the Easterby gelding as he'll handle any ground deterioration and showed himself in good heart when scoring at Pontefract last month. The consistent pair of Sangar and Chookie Hamilton are next best.

Selection: Tapis Libre        Danger: Law To Himself        Alternative: Sangar
