Verdict

PASS MUSTER looks the one to beat in a modest handicap. He beat Cadore by 11 lengths over course and distance in November and, though now 15lb worse off, went on to chase home the progressive Portway Flyer at Exeter. Shan Valley should strip fitter for her comeback third over track and trip and a market move for either Inniscastle Boy or Benalex Park would be interesting but veteran That'll Do Nicely is returning from a break.
