Race Verdict

A number in with chances and WEST END LAD edges the vote. Arriving at the top of his game, he backed up an impressive C&D success when third off this mark at Newcastle latest and another big run looks on the cards. Glass Mountain came agonizingly close to completing the hat-trick at Yarmouth last month and that first start since October may well have just taken the edge off him, while last-time-out winners Veiled Applause and Figaro add extra spice to the race.

Selection: West End Lad        Danger: Glass Mountain        Alternative: Veiled Applause
