Race Verdict

Za'lan doesn't look the most straightforward of rides and, after blowing his chances with a tardy start on debut at Southwell, was turned over at cramped odds in a Lingfield maiden before scraping home by a neck at that same venue latest. He's been handed a moderate rating as a result but a safer option appears to be GABRIAL'S KING, who has already made his mark twice in handicaps and promises to improve further over this stiffer trip. C&D winner Excellent News makes more appeal than King's Wharf, who has been held off similar marks in a handicap previously.

Selection: Gabrial's King        Danger: Za'lan        Alternative: Excellent News
