2:45 – John Williams – 3/1 @ WH & Coral – Likes it here, two wins, including C&D. Not sure about the ground easing further but the 9-year-old is well suited to good ground. Stable among the winners of late. Capable of going close off just 3lb higher than for his last win.
4:45 – Decoration Of War – 13/8 @ William Hill & Ladbrokes – First run since joining the Michael Appleby stable, 2 wins from 3 runs for previous trainer at Wolverhampton. A poor last run over C&D to overcome but the 3-year-old was progressive before that. Drop backs in to Class 5 company and looks capable of better run for new trainer.
