It's difficult to be confident about any of this bunch. BARABOY gets only a token vote having posted a couple of better efforts last month, including a close-up second at Doncaster. Tweedo Paradiso wasn't beaten far when fourth on his penultimate start but Right To Rule hasn't shown any improvement for his slide down the weights and failed to complete last time. Some Lad was placed on more than one occasion at this time last year and may prove best of the rest in a poor handicap.
