In depth

Verdict

Apart from falling at the first at Newton Abbot last month, Sergeant has done little wrong since returning from a break. But he does have his quirks and Dolly McQueen, who stayed on into fourth behind him at Exeter 11 days ago, is now 8lb better off though never figured at Stratford on Saturday. HACKBRIDGE has placed three times on the Flat this year and again made the frame back over hurdles at Worcester so may be the value, though Blood Eagle only weakened on the run-in last time at Exeter.
