In depth

Verdict

Teophilip's win came in heavy ground and he's been well beaten on Polytrack either side of that Yarmouth victory. Staffhoss and Lucky Di have been running well without success in handicaps since winning their respective maidens but Grilletto came good over track and trip in October and is 5lb higher today. Black Dave went close to recording a hat trick when just denied at Kempton last week but the vote goes to winning debutant STREET BATTLE, who scored by seven lengths over course and distance last month and has plenty of scope for improvement.
