Flags: Horse In Focus, Top-Rated
Intervention failed to score in 21 starts for Charles O'Brien in Ireland, but it didn't take him long to get off the mark for Mick Appleby. Intervention won on his second start for Appleby, landing a seven-furlong apprentice handicap at Wolverhampton last week with more in hand than the margin of three-quarters of a length would suggest. He was runner-up off the same mark at Lingfield on Saturday but really should have won as he made up a lot of ground after conceding first run. The drop back to six furlongs on a stiff course like this shouldn't be a problem and Intervention - who is 10 lb clear of his rivals on Timeform's weight-adjusted ratings - can gain compensation for Saturday's unlucky defeat.
