In depth

Verdict

LEWA HOUSE was Catch Bissett’s first-ever winner as a trainer when beating a big field on soft ground at Hexham and he gets a handy 7lb here from the Musselburgh scorer Faithfulflyer, who is a danger nonetheless. Ginger Pointe has only had three runs under Rules but is proving quite consistent and Katie Scott’s five-year-old looks the pick of the remainder.
