Verdict

ATHAAKEEL beat much higher rated opposition than this when landing a seller at Wolverhampton last time. He can defy a penalty and go in again with a similar effort. Flaxen Lake was only beaten a length in this grade at Kempton last week and can figure while First Rebellion has claims off his current mark with an apprentice's allowance helping his cause. Very First Blade was placed at Southwell recently and Script made the frame over track and trip last month - they could also play a part.
