Verdict

AFTER EIGHT SIVOLA hasn't managed to make the frame in three starts so far but has been quite highly tried and gives the impression he is still learning his job. This could well be within his range if there's a decent gallop. Muhtaris looks held on Huntingdon running and Raven's Tower's limitations have already been exposed. Haatefina, placed twice over track and trip, has been knocking on the door, however, and should be thereabouts again but Interior Minister may do better when tackling handicaps later in the season.
