In depth

Verdict

The drop back to 2m didn't suit BROADWAY SYMPHONY last time at Towcester but he'd been in good form over this sort of trip previously and should be able to beat Ffos Las scorer Bonobo in receipt of 7lb. The latter is trying this longer trip for the first time but still makes more appeal than Twice Returned, who is now blinkered after being tried in cheekpieces when a one-paced second at Newton Abbot. Master Rajeem was runner-up over track and trip in November but has gone backwards since.
