The Sportsman's Verdict
KRIPKE appeared to win a shade cosily over this trip at Pontefract earlier in the month and is expected to defy a 4lb rise to follow up. Universal Gleam has been given wind surgery since finishing down the field at Wolverhampton last August and is worth a market check, though a bigger danger may be Brilliant Vanguard, who has dropped 1lb below his last winning turf mark and is entitled to come on for his reappearance spin at Musselburgh.
