Race Verdict

A tightly-knit handicap apart from the out-of-form bottom weight. Pigeon Island would have swatted these aside in his pomp but efforts last year lacked sparkle and he's been absent since late December. He's best watched for now. Marley Roca may need the run too, Temple Lord is hard to catch right and Marescsou is on the comeback trail, all of which leaves SUPER FORMEN and Chain Of Command. The former disappointed last time but the overall level of his form is solid enough and he's just preferred with the Greatrex inmate yet to fully convince over the fences.

Selection: Super Formen        Danger: Chain Of Command        Alternative: Pigeon Island
