Verdict

MR OPTIMISTIC bounced back to form with a victory over track and trip last month and remains on a decent mark compared to his best efforts. He gets the token vote ahead of Scommettitrice as the latter as yet to score on the all-weather. Slatey Hen has slipped down the weights and pops-up at this level on occasions as does Jonnie Skull though the latter was engaged to run at Lingfield yesterday. Almaty Express could prove best of the remainder.
