Verdict

As competitive a handicap as one will see but preference is for KK LEXION. There's a chance this trip could spark some improvement and he may be able to defy his rise in the weights. Behind Time comes from what looks like a hot race at Newbury last time and he's probably better than that finishing position suggests, after hanging on the run in. El Terremoto isn't the easiest to assess but this step up in trip could see him to better effect and he shapes like a stamina test would suit. 1. Kk Lexion 2. Behind Time 3. El Terremoto
