In depth

Verdict

Gemologist has gone close a few times but has had 42 races and never won. TOMORROW’S ANGEL has won once over hurdles and twice on the Flat, including one over this course and distance. If she’s fully primed, Tristan Davidson’s mare should be up to taking this. The Resdev Way is a danger as he’s won 11 times on the level and has been in good form at Wolverhampton lately while Will He Dance was second at Ayr on Monday, though is now 0-11.
