Verdict

Irish raiders Got The Nac, Alikali and Ebony Roc have shown very little and Itstimeforapint was beaten 13 lengths by TITUS BOLT at Ayr last month. The latter was having his ninth start over timber but not winning out of turn and a quick follow-up looks on the cards. Avidity, a bumper winner at Doncaster a year ago, made a fair debut over timber at Newcastle in November and with that under his belt should provide the main threat.
