Verdict

There was cut in the ground when SIR PEDRO won at Doncaster last season and today's drop in class could see him back to winning ways. He's preferred to Vodka Time, who has looked a shadow of last year's promising two-year-old since returning from a lengthy absence. Sandman's Girl has also struggled badly this term and was tailed off at Redcar last week. Bond Club has something to find at the weights on today's terms but acts in soft ground and makes most appeal of the remainder in a pretty poor seller.
