In depth

Verdict

Tahiti Pearl was a somewhat lucky winner over track and trip on Boxing Day and has gone up a further 5lb since. He may be worth taking on today with TARA ROYAL, who has his sights lowered a little and is only a pound higher than when beating Woody Waller by more than four lengths at Musselburgh a year ago. John Wade's charge hasn't run since April last year and stablemate Riskier is better over further in general, though seems to like it around here.
